On April 27, 2012, the president of the United States signed Executive Order 13607, Establishing Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Service Members, Veterans/Spouses, and Other Family Members. This executive order addresses key areas relating to federal military and veteran educational benefits programs. Military or affiliated students may qualify for federal assistance or student loans under federal financial aid programs (Title IV).
