Under the post 9/11 GI Bill tuition and fees are fully covered for those veterans with 100% eligibility attending The Wescoe School. To honor and thank our veterans, Muhlenberg College has partnered with the US Department of Veterans affairs in offering a scholarship to cover the difference between the cost of full time day tuition and the reimbursed amount offered by the post 9/11 GI Bill, thereby covering 100% of the tuition costs for eligible veterans.
Additionally, the Wescoe School has dedicated advisors that will help veterans navigate the process of returning to school. To start the process, please find below links to sites that will help you find out if you are eligible under the post-9/11 GI Bill. If you have any questions along the way, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 484.664.3300. We look forward to you joining us!

How Do I Apply for Benefits under Post-9/11 GI Bill?
The Department of Veterans Affairs is now accepting and processing applications for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. You should complete and submit the application form available online and will receive written notification explaining VA’s decision regarding your eligibility for the program. If you are eligible, your Certificate of Eligibility will also advise you if your service meets the requirements for the Yellow Ribbon Program. If your school has volunteered to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, you should take your Certificate of Eligibility to your school and ask your school to certify your enrollment to VA, including Yellow Ribbon. You cannot certify your participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program directly to the VA. Your school must report this information on your enrollment certification.
Remember, to receive benefits under the Yellow Ribbon Program:
You must be eligible for the maximum benefit rate under the Post-9/11 GI Bill;
Your school must agree to participate in the Yellow Program;
Your school must have not offered Yellow Ribbon to more than the maximum number of individuals stated in their participation agreement;
Your school must certify your enrollment to VA, including Yellow Ribbon program information.
