Veteran Education Benefits

Emory’s Office of the University Registrar administers and manages our Veterans Education Benefits programs in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). It is our honor to support Emory students, and their families, who have and are serving in the armed forces.

Getting Started

If you have not applied for education benefits with the VA or if you need to transfer your current benefits, you will need to determine your eligibility, review and compare benefit types and options, and apply for or transfer the benefits you qualify for.

If you are new to Emory but have already applied for, are currently receiving, or have successfully transferred your benefits, your next steps will be to notify the VA that you will be attending Emory, complete our Emory VA Benefits Enrollment Form then complete a certification request.

The Office of Financial Aid takes veterans education benefits into account when we evaluate your eligibility for institutional aid, however these funds do not impact your eligibility for Federal aid such as Pell Grants or Federal Direct Loans. If you choose to utilize your Post-9/11 GI Bill® or Yellow Ribbon benefits, we encourage you to also complete the FAFSA.

Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon program is a supplementary program under the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 which provides additional funding for mandatory tuition and other expenses not otherwise covered by the VA tuition and fees benefit. Yellow Ribbon benefits are allocated on a first come, first served basis and extremely limited.
