Tulane University's Mandatory Veterans Enrollment Form

Starting with Spring 2019, Tulane University will require all students using veteran educational benefits, to complete the Veterans Enrollment Form.

The Veterans Enrollment form must be completed each semester (fall, spring or summer) in which the student wants to use their VA Educational Benefits.

Students that do not submit the Veterans Enrollment form in any given semester, will not be certified for VA Educational Benefits for that semester.

It is the student’s responsibility to report all enrollment changes to the Tulane University Student Veterans Services Office as soon as they occur to maintain disbursement of educational benefits. Changes in enrollment can be submitted via email to: veterans@tulane.edu

Yellow Ribbon Program

What is the Yellow Ribbon Program?

Degree-granting institutions of higher learning participating in the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program agree to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to your GI Bill entitlement. These institutions voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with VA and choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed. VA matches that amount and issues payments directly to the institution.

Tulane University is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Tulane University's Yellow Ribbon Application

Tulane University accepts a limited number of Yellow Ribbon applications for each academic year beginning in the fall semester. Applications will be accepted on a first come/first serve basis or placed on a waitlist, if necessary.

A new Yellow Ribbon application is required once per academic year. If you submitted a Yellow Ribbon Application in Fall, you do not need to complete another application for the following Spring semester.

Application Eligibility

  • All students must possess a Certificate of Eligibility for the Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill at the 100% level.
  • The student must not be using transferred benefits from a spouse that is currently on Active Duty.
  • Active duty personnel and spouses are NOT eligible for Yellow Ribbon.
