Military & Veterans

Serving Those Who Have Served

Emmanuel College proudly welcomes those who have served for our country.

We participate in the Post-9/11 GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program to help make affording an online college education easier for U.S. military veterans.

Post-9/11 GI Bill®

The Post-9/11 GI Bill gives U.S. military veterans up to 36 months of education benefits. To be eligible, you — or a parent, if they have transferred their benefits to you — must have served at least 90 days of active duty after Sept. 10, 2001. If you are eligible for the program, Emmanuel College will receive tuition payments from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for each semester in which you are enrolled. The amount of this payment depends on the length of aggregate active duty service and the VA’s maximum tuition benefit amount.

Yellow Ribbon Program

If your tuition costs exceed the VA’s maximum tuition benefit amount for the academic year, then the Yellow Ribbon Program can make your online education more affordable. Part of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, the Yellow Ribbon Program is available to eligible U.S. military veterans and their dependents. If you have 100% Chapter 33 eligibility for the academic year, your tuition costs for the fall and spring semesters will be covered in full under this program. Funding for this benefit comes from both the VA and Emmanuel College.
