Welcome prospective student veteran or dependent!!

We are excited that you are taking the next step in your journey by looking into using your GI Bill® at CBU! You can use your GI Bill® Chapters 1606, 30, 31, 33 and 35. During the 2021–2022 academic year we had over 500 students use their Veterans Affairs (VA) educational benefits at CBU. During the same academic year, CBU graduated 98 student veterans/dependents during the fall, spring, and summer terms!

We currently have an unlimited number of Yellow Ribbon scholarships available for both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

*** Effective Fall 2021, students under Chapters 30, 31, 33, 35, and 1606 are now required to submit a VA Certification Request Form every semester if they plan to use VA educational benefits at CBU. Students can fill out the form electronically located on the right side of this page. Once submitted, the form will go straight to the School Certifying Official's email address. Call the Financial Aid Office for confirmation of receipt. ***

We will waive your application fee of $45. Just put "veteran" in the promotional code in your application—it is that easy.
