If you have not already done so, Apply for GI Bill Benefits.For questions regarding education benefit programs contact a Department of Veterans Affairs education representative at 1-888-442-4551 in order to discuss your education benefits.
If you have elected to use Chapter 33 Post 9/11 benefits and are considered 100% eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program contact the office at 202-885-8012 for more information.
Note: Eligible recipients of the Yellow Ribbon Program at AU are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis. It is very important that you contact the office immediately upon acceptance to inquire about Yellow Ribbon benefits. Once you have been awarded Yellow Ribbon you do not need to reapply each year. However, if you change degree programs, for example, you move from an undergraduate to a graduate program, you must reapply.
