Columbia College of Nursing is proud to support the men and women in uniform who have served our country. It is the responsibility of the student Veteran to be aware of their eligibility for federal and state veteran’s benefits and follow all program requirements. Student Veterans are asked to contact the Registrar’s Office to initiate the procedure to have their Veteran’s Affairs (VA) benefits processed. Students will be required to complete the Application for Certification of Veterans Affairs Education Benefits before each semester they wish to have VA Education Benefits apply.
Columbia College of Nursing also participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Columbia College of Nursing agrees to provide Yellow Ribbon Program contributions of $1,500 to the eligible individuals that apply during the academic year. Students are required to submit a signed, completed Yellow Ribbon Benefit Application to the VA Certifying Official. Student applications will be considered, as they are received. When the document is processed, the student will be notified if they are eligible to receive benefits through the Yellow Ribbon Program.
For specific eligibility criteria and clarification of benefit programs, students should refer to the Department of Veterans Affairs website, www.gibill.va.gov or contact their County Veterans Services Officer (CVSO) for assistance in utilizing benefits.
For additional assistance with determining eligibility call the VA General Education Benefits hotline at: 888-442-4551 or visit the Milwaukee Regional Benefit Office.
