An NYU degree is well within reach for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. NYU is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, which provides scholarship assistance from the University and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Veterans join an extraordinary community of McGhee students many of whom, like themselves, have taken a nontraditional path toward their undergraduate education. The McGhee Division’s supportive and flexible learning environment allows students to pursue their studies while keeping up with family, work and community obligations. Advisors and staff members strive to help you achieve balance while advancing your progress quickly and successfully.
To be considered for Yellow Ribbon benefits an individual must meet the criteria to receive the maximum Post 9/11 GI Bill benefit. An individual may be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Enhancement if he/she:
- Served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001, of at least 36 months
- Was honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and had served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001
- Is a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based upon a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria, as described by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is currently accepting applications for the Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits. To qualify for the Yellow Ribbon Enhancement, you must apply to the VA. The VA will determine your eligibility for the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and issue you a Certificate of Eligibility. You may then contact Clara Fonteboa, at email@example.com or at (212) 998-4823.
NYU also offers extensive resources for veterans through the NYU Student Resource Center.
