Financial Support for Active Duty and Veterans

The Post-9/11 GI Bill

If you have at least 90 days of aggregate active duty service after September 10, 2001, and are still on active duty, or if you are an honorably discharged Veteran or were discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days, you may be eligible for Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, administered through Veterans Affairs. Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits cover the cost of in-state tuition, fees, and student health insurance for candidates who are eligible.

The Yellow Ribbon Program

The College of William & Mary is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon (YR) Program which is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher education (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed the amount payable by the VA.

Students will automatically be considered for this program once a copy of the Certificate of Eligibility is submitted to the Veterans Benefits Officer.
