Goucher College accepts and participates in most U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs benefits chapters. For VA Benefits chapter and eligibility information visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Goucher College is proud to participate in The Yellow Ribbon Program. *Undergraduate students who are Yellow Ribbon eligible will typically have tuition and fees covered by their VA Benefits combined with Goucher College's Yellow Ribbon matching grant. They also receive a housing allowance directly from the VA which is usually enough to cover the basic housing costs of a resident student.
(*Graduate students and Post-Baccalaureate Premedical students are not eligible for Yellow Ribbon matching grants.)
Before submitting any Goucher-specific paperwork to us, you will need to apply for benefits with the VA and obtain your Certificate of Eligibility:
