Veteran Education Benefits

Veterans and military dependents are able to use their VA education benefits, including:

  • Post 9/11 GI Bill®
  • Montgomery Bill®
  • Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance (DEA)
  • Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment

Additionally, the University of Rochester is a proud participant of the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Eligible students must provide proof of education benefits (statement of benefits from va.gov, certificate of eligibility, or a screenshot from eBenefits). Students who wish to be considered for additional assistance should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the CSS PROFILE.

In accordance with Title 38 US Code 3679 subsection (e), this school adopts the following additional provisions for any students using U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Post 9/11 G.I. Bill® (Ch. 33) or Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (Ch. 31) benefits, while payment to the institution is pending from the VA. This school will not:

  • Prevent nor delay the student’s enrollment
  • Assess a late penalty fee to the student
  • Require the student to secure alternative or additional funding
  • Deny the student access to any resources available to other students who have satisfied their tuition and fee bills to the institution, including access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities

However, to qualify for this provision, such students may be required to:

  • Produce the certificate of eligibility by the first day of class
  • Provide written request to be certified
  • Provide additional information needed to properly certify the enrollment as described in other institutional policies
