Financial Aid for Veterans
The Department of Veterans Affairs recognizes Dunwoody as a Benefits Eligible College. The College is also a Yellow Ribbon College (see below).
Yellow Ribbon Program
The Yellow Ribbon program is a voluntary agreement between Veterans Affairs and the College that allows eligible students (current and newly admitted) to have funding of up to $1,000 matched by the College.
Who is Eligible?
Only individuals entitled to the maximum Post-9/11 GI Bill benefit rate (based on service requirements) are eligible for Yellow Ribbon funding. Therefore, you may be eligible if:
- You served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001 of at least 36 months;
- You were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and you served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001; and
- You are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria listed above.
How to Qualify
To qualify for the Yellow Ribbon program, you must:
- Have served 36 months on active duty in the United States military after September 10, 2001, thus making you 100% eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
- Submit an application for the Post-9/11 GI Bill to the Department of Veterans Affairs online at www.va.gov and provide a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to your Admissions Counselor.
- Be admitted to Dunwoody College of Technology.
