How to Apply
Once a student has been accepted to a degree program at Georgetown University on the Main Campus or School of Continuing Studies, students can take the steps below to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Georgetown Law Yellow Ribbon Program inquiries and how to apply can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org and School of Medicine Yellow Ribbon Program inquiries and how to apply can be directed to either Mr. John Hammett.
1. Provide a Proof of Benefits indicating that the student is 100% eligible for Post-9/11 benefits and not on active duty or receiving transferred benefits from a spouse on active duty. In the event a Certificate of Eligibility letter or eBenefits screenshot still lists the student on active duty or their spouse on active duty, but the service member has separated, the Veterans Office will accept a copy of the student’s or spouse’s DD-214 paperwork (please black out sensitive information) in combination with the Proof of Benefits. Proof of Benefits is only needed once per degree program, unless there is a change of eligibility.
2. Graduate Students enrolled in the School of Nursing and Health Studies must submit the respective 2018-2019 Yellow Ribbon Program Request Form found below. This step is required because this school has a set number of students who can participate in the program and the Yellow Ribbon Program Request Form serves as a way for us to track first-come-first-serve applications. The Yellow Ribbon Program Request Form is only needed once per academic year. Students will need to be logged into their Georgetown email account and logged out of any other email account to access this form.
Yellow Ribbon Program eligible students enrolled in the Main Campus undergraduate programs, the School of Continuing Studies (undergraduate and masters only), Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, McDonough School of Business graduate programs, School of Foreign Service graduate programs, and the McCourt School of Public Policy can request to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program in the semesterly Benefit Request Form since these programs have unlimited student slots.
3. Complete the Benefit Request Form each semester. This step is required for all undergraduate and graduate students on the Main Campus and School of Continuing Studies.
