Military Benefits

If you served on Active Duty, you might be eligible for education benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs. For example, the Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for educational and housing expenses to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. If you are currently serving in the military, you may be eligible for funding offered through the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance program. Check your eligibility status and the amount for which you qualify with your Service prior to enrolling. If you are the spouse or child of a service member who is serving on active duty Title 10 orders in the paygrades of E1-E5, O1-O2, or W1-W2, you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Department of Defense for education, training, and/or the occupational license and credentials necessary for a portable career. If you are the spouse or child of a service member, you may be eligible for transfer of the service member’s Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to you.

Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The Post-9/11 GI Bill pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition and fees. Adler University has voluntarily entered into agreement with the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed those already covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Who is eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program?

Eligible veterans include veterans who have:

  • Served at least 36 months of active duty after September 10th, 2001
  • Served at least 30 continuous days after September 10th, 2001 and were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-related disability

Dependents of veterans may also be eligible to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits if the veteran is eligible to transfer his or her entitlement in the program. Learn more about veteran benefits.

Students eligible for US veteran's benefits should consult with the Office of Financial Aid. All funds are processed according to Title 38, Sections 1651 and 1701, of the State Approval Agency for Veteran's Education.
