The Veterans Affairs Office would like to thank you for your service to our country and for choosing Embry-Riddle to fulfill your educational goals. We hope that your experience with this institution is rewarding.
The mission of the Veterans Affairs Office is to serve the educational and training needs of prospective and enrolled service members, veterans, dependents, and their survivors eligible to receive education benefits under various Department of Veterans Affairs programs.
The office is staffed with qualified veterans program administrators who provide a broad range of services. We foster peer connections, coordinate university and community support, provide general and specific information about all benefits available to men and women who are serving or who have served in the armed forces and their dependents, report enrollment information to authorized appropriate allowances, and provide other advisory counseling and referral services.
Embry-Riddle has entered into an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to participate in the Post 9/11 Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) to fund a portion of the cost of tuition and fees that exceed the basic tuition and fees amount payable by the VA.
Students William "Bill" Scott and Sylvester Southwell were recipients of the Pat Carmody Scholarship, which provides financial aid to non-traditional students returning to education in order to pursue a university degree. The scholarship awarded a combined $20,000 to Scott and Southwell, and will ensure they graduate with Business Administration and Safety degrees in 2018.
