Maryville College welcomes veterans who wish to attend Maryville College as fulltime students and who are eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program benefits. Students must apply through the Department of Veterans Affairs.
To apply for VA benefits at Maryville College, a student must supply copies of the VA Application for Benefits, DD213 and Certificate of Eligibility to the School Certifying Official (the Registrar) after being accepted for admission to the College. Once the student is registered for classes and has received a financial aid award notification, enrollment will be certified to the VA by the Registrar.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 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.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill also offers some service members the opportunity to transfer their GI Bill to dependents.
Once you receive your Certificate of Eligibility from the Department of Veterans Affairs, you should take all required VA documentation to the College's SCO (the Registrar) for the school to certify your enrollment to the VA.
