Veterans and Military Service Information
Rider’s degree programs are approved under the Veterans Readjustment Benefits Act of 1966, as amended. An Application for Program of Education is available from one of Rider’s veterans’ affairs representatives or online at www.vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp or www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/. Students in CCS should complete this form and return it to the veterans’ affairs representative in their college. Students enrolled as full-time day students, graduate students, or students receiving benefits under Vocational Rehabilitation for Disabled Veterans should return this form to the veterans’ affairs representative in the registrar’s office.
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 DD 214 (separation papers) or their Certificate of Eligibility (for students under the post 9/11 G.I. Bill) with the appropriate veterans affairs representative.
