Veterans' Benefits

 

VETERANS’ BENEFITS

 

Students who are veterans or dependents of veterans may be eligible for monthly aid through the federal Veterans Administration. Information should be sought from the local VA office.

 

Yellow Ribbon Program*

 

Randolph-Macon College is among the colleges and universities participating in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Act of 2008.

The Yellow Ribbon Program allows degree-granting institutions to enter into a voluntary annual agreement with the Veterans Administration (VA) to fund tuition and mandatory fee expenses. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses, and VA will match the same amount as the institution.

Randolph-Macon will offer up to $5,000 per year in grant aid which will be matched by the Department of Veterans Affairs to those eligible at the 100% VA benefit level. We are expected to offer up to 60 new and renewal awards for the 2017-2018 academic year on a first come, first served basis. 

Eligible students must provide the Financial Aid Office with a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility from the Veterans Administration.

Note: Please be aware that the maximum total of all Randolph-Macon non-need based awards, (i.e., presidential scholarships, legacy grants, family grants, minister's family grants, pre-ministerial grants, employee tuition remission, and tuition exchange) plus the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant (TAG) may not exceed tuition.

* These grants require that you submit the Entitlement Eligibility Form located in the Form Bank.
