Veterans

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has approved Susquehanna to provide education under the public laws pertaining to veterans, reservists and the children of armed forces personnel who lost their lives in the service of their country. Candidates should present certificates of eligibility and entitlement before registration. Veterans who come to the university without the appropriate certificates may apply after arrival through the Office of the Registrar.

To be eligible for full veterans' benefits, a student must be a degree candidate in good academic standing and carry at least 12 semester hours in each of the two semesters of an academic year. Veterans must notify the assistant registrar of re-enrollment at the beginning of each semester and of any course dropped later.

Susquehanna is a participant in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program. The Yellow Ribbon program is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Veterans Administration (VA) to fund expenses up to $20,235.02 for the 2014-15 academic year. The institution can contribute up to 50 percent of any remaining tuition, and the VA will match the same amount as the institution. Contact the Office of the Registrar for information on Susquehanna's participation in the Yellow Ribbon program.
