Education Benefits for Veterans and Dependents

We’re extraordinarily proud of our service men and women, and of the sacrifices they and their families make for our country. We consider it a great honor to be in a position to help Veterans transition into successful civilian careers and assist members of their families as they pursue their rewarding futures.

Veteran’s Benefits

The State Approving Agency for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs facilitates the administration and awarding of aid for those who qualify. Valley College participates in the Montgomery GI Bill. Valley College accepts all Chapters of the VA.

MyCAA (Veteran’s Spouse Benefits)

Valley College is approved to administer My Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) benefits for spouses of certain active military duty personnel. Eligibility criteria can be obtained from the Department of Financial Aid.

Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed either the annual maximum cap for private institutions or the resident tuition and fees for a public institution. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. Please contact the Valley College financial aid department for additional eligibility criteria.
