Carleton requires VA benefit eligible students to submit a certificate of eligibility along with any additional documents requested to the Registrar’s Office before any benefits can be disbursed. Carleton also commits not to impose any fees because of a late VA benefit disbursement.

Carleton College proudly participates in the Yellow Ribbon program. The Veteran’s Administration (VA) will pay Carleton through the Post 911 GI Bill® for tuition and fee charges after any grants and/or scholarships have been subtracted. Once that amount has been disbursed by the VA, any remaining tuition and fee charges for that term or subsequent terms are then eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program. Carleton has committed to pay 50% of that remaining Yellow Ribbon eligible tuition and fee charges which is then matched by the VA. 

The Registrar’s Office is the campus liaison with the Veterans’ Administration, and Ann May is the Designated Officer for submitting official VA forms related to eligibility and certification of enrollment for benefits. Our forms are processed at the regional office in Buffalo NY (Veterans Administration Educational Benefit, P.O.Box 4616, Buffalo, NY 14240-4616).

Most answers to questions concerning your individual benefits and certifications can be found at the VA’s GI Bill® page. The GI Bill® Comparison Tool will provide information about college affordability and brings together information from more than 17 different online sources and three federal agencies, including the number of students receiving VA education benefits at each school.

Information regarding the Isakson & Roe Benefits Improvement Act of 2021 Section 1018 is available.
