Clarkson University Partners with VA Yellow Ribbon Program for Full Tuition Benefits for Military Personnel and Families
Since August 2009, Clarkson University has provided full tuition benefits to qualifying post-9-11 active duty service members, veterans and eligible dependents of military personnel under the federal government’s Yellow Ribbon Program.
In this partnership, the Department of Veterans Affairs is matching the contributions made by schools to pay for the education of eligible veterans and qualifying dependents. The combination of Clarkson’s match to those paid by the VA under the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act will cover the full cost of tuition and fees in more than 60 programs of study at Clarkson including undergraduate education, the online MBA program and other graduate degrees in business, physical therapy, science and engineering.
With a long history of military preparation on its campus, Clarkson University’s Army and Airforce ROTC units have been recognized in Washington Monthly Magazine among the top five universities in its Annual College Guide for the percentage of students serving in ROTC. Students in these programs are the recipients of numerous awards and recognition for their scholastic work as well as success in field training.
