Veterans and Servicemembers might have education benefits available to them, their spouses and family members. If eligible, you might be able to benefit for more than one program. To learn more about the education benefits available, please visit the U.S Department of Veteran Affairs website

Gustavus Adolphus College is a participant for both Chapter 33 Post-9/11 GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon Program. We are a 50% Yellow Ribbon Program participant. This means that if you are 100% eligible and have reached the national maximum for the Post-9/11 GI Bill® during the academic year, the VA and Gustavus Adolphus College will cover the remainder of your tuition and fees through the Yellow Ribbon Program for that particular academic year. The VA will cover 50% of your tuition and fees and Gustavus Adolphus College will cover the other 50% through the Yellow Ribbon Program.
