Sonoran Desert Institute

At Sonoran Desert Institute, we love our Veterans!


Military and previous military students make up the majority of our student body at SDI, and we’re proud of that. After all, individuals with military experience make for exemplary students! Our staff members are constantly helping veterans choose the right programs for them, and over our nearly 100-year history, thousands of veterans have graduated from our programs. We’re here to help walk you through your VA Benefits application process and SDI enrollment process.

SDI’s military-friendly status means that we offer convenient programming, flexible schedules, affordable payment plans, and that we comply with all requirements of the VA and DoD. Classes start year-round, courses are self-directed, and you’ll get instructors’ help quickly and easily, should you need it. Plus, our VA Certifying Officials are here to answer questions about your benefits enrollment process. Let us serve you by offering a quality education with a clear and expedited enrollment process.

SDI is approved for use of a qualified student’s:

  • Post-911 GI Bill
  • Montgomery GI Bill

And other programs for those who qualify!
