Rider’s degree programs are approved under the Veterans Readjustment Benefits Act of 1966, as amended. An application for VA Education and Training benefits is available online at www.vets.gov or www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/ .

Veterans who receive post 9/11 G.I. Bill benefits may be eligible for Rider’s Yellow Ribbon program.

Students filing for benefits at Rider will be responsible for filing a copy of their separation papers (DD214) and/or their Certificate of Eligibility (COE) with the appropriate school certifying official. Contact the CCS certifying official at 609-896-5033 or the Registrar’s Office certifying official at 609-896-5066 with any questions.

A student who submits a complaint to the DoD and/or VA concerning any type of Federal or veteran educational benefit must also inform Rider University in writing within 7 (seven) days of when the complaint is made in order for the issue to be resolved as quickly as possible.

Enrolled students may contact the Veterans and Military Affairs Office at 609-896-5000 ext.7382 with any questions or concerns.
