As a Yellow Ribbon school, Colgate has entered into an agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs promising to cover the cost of tuition and fees above those covered by the basic GI Bill. The result is that eligible student-veterans (or dependents of veterans) have all of their tuition, fees, and educational expenses covered.
Veterans must be in the VA’s 100% eligibility tier and have been honorably discharged from active duty since 9/11/01 to receive or to transfer their Yellow Ribbon benefit. Eligible military veterans can learn more at the GI Bill website
How to Apply
To begin, apply for VA education benefits through the Veterans Administration
and then contact the Office of Financial Aid
to process your award. Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
To calculate a student's potential non-Yellow Ribbon GI benefits, which in some cases can be transferred to a veteran's dependent through a transfer of benefits application made to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, please visit the VA's GI Bill Benefits Calculator
Questions about veterans' benefits may be directed either to the nearest VA regional benefits office
or to the Office of Financial Aid
