GI Bill/Yellow Ribbon Benefits

VA SealCarleton College proudly participates in the Yellow Ribbon program. The Veteran's Administration (VA) will pay Carleton through the Post 9/11 GI Bill for tuition and fee charges after any grants and/or scholarships have been subtracted.  The tuition and fees cap for the 2018-19 academic year is $23,671.94. Once that amount has been disbursed by the VA to pay for any tuition and fee charges, any remaining tuition and fee charges for that term or subsequent terms are then eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program. Carleton has committed to pay 50% of that remaining Yellow Ribbon eligible tuition and fee charges which is then matched by the VA. VA benefits are front loaded so it's likely that earlier terms may not have any Yellow Ribbon eligible tuition charges.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has an online GI Bill® Comparison Tool designed to make it easier for Veterans, Service members and their dependents to calculate their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits and learn more about VA’s approved colleges, universities and other education and training programs across the country. The GI Bill Comparison Tool provides brings together information from more than 17 different online sources and three federal agencies.  Another resource veterans can use is the Online College Resources for Veteran's page.

The Registrar’s Office serves as the campus liaison with the Veterans' Administration.  Ann May is the Designated Officer for signing official VA forms related to eligibility and certification of enrollment for benefits.  If you have any questions, please call or email Ann May (X4289 and describe the problem.

Wells Fargo has specific scholarships and grants for veterans.  The Wells Fargo Veterans Scholarship Program provides scholarships to fill unmet financial need of veterans after military benefits and other grants and scholarships have been packaged by their school. This financial support will allow veterans to focus on completing their education and reduce reliance on student loans.  The Wells Fargo Veterans Emergency Grant Program provides emergency financial grants to veterans already enrolled in postsecondary education who might otherwise be forced to drop out of college because of unforeseen financial emergencies.  These grants will help veterans meet their household expenses and ensure they are able to stay in school without creating undue financial hardship for themselves or their families.
