Benefits for Veterans
GI Bill for Veterans
If you are a veteran who served on continuous active duty for 181 days or more after January 31, 1955, you may be eligible for educational benefits under the Montgomery G.I. Bill. If you are the dependent of a veteran who died or is permanently disabled as a result of service in the armed forces, you may also be eligible for educational benefits. Contact your local Department of Veteran Affairs office for details.
Yellow Ribbon Program
Through this program, a partnership between the federal government and Drexel, the University matches the government's contribution to the cost of an education, allowing eligible veterans to attend Drexel with no out-of-pocket expenses. To determine eligibility, visit www.gibill.va.gov. For more information about Drexel’s participation in the program, visit our Yellow Ribbon page.
Federal College Work-Study
The Federal College Work-Study program at Drexel is designed to promote the part-time employment of students who have demonstrated financial need and who require the wages from employment to pursue their education.
Employment under the Federal College Work-Study program is awarded as part of the financial aid package. The amount earned will not be applied to the student's tuition, but will be paid to the student through a paycheck. The availability of funds from this program is limited.
