  • Military Financial Aid & Veterans' Benefits

    Remington College is a military friendly college with most locations approved for veterans training by the Department of Veterans' Affairs. Applications for veteran benefits may be obtained from the campus you are interested in attending or online at www.gibill.va.gov.

    Approval of a student's eligibility to receive any veteran's benefits is within the sole discretion of the Veterans Administration, and Remington College campuses and other educational institutions have no ability to influence such determinations, for those that qualify.

    GI Bill Benefits

    Many students are eligible for GI Bill benefits and/or tuition assistance based on their prior or current military service. Active duty military students may be eligible for tuition assistance through their branch of service or stationed base.

    Yellow Ribbon

    The Post-9/11 GI Bill pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition and fees. You may have tuition and fees that exceed that amount if you are attending a private institution, graduate school or attending in an out-of-state status. If you are enrolled at a Yellow Ribbon participating institution and the tuition and fees exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition or fees, additional funds may be available for your education program without an additional charge to your entitlement.
