Veterans Admission Requirements

Gallaudet University is committed to America's veterans and has a long history of serving them. Gallaudet is authorized to accept all GI Bill payments including the additional contributions by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) through the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program), a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. According to the VA, the program is available to veterans who have sustained "a service connected disability." In addition to accepting veterans being supported through the general GI Bill, under the Yellow Ribbon Agreement, Gallaudet will support up to 25 eligible veterans during an academic year for any graduate program for an amount up to $2,175.00 (full time graduate status) in tuition expenses. Gallaudet is listed on the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)  Approved Education Programs website as an institution participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
