Yellow Ribbon ProgramGuide to Admission for
Veterans of the United States Armed Services

1. Determine if you should apply as a transfer or first-year student.

2. Submit your application and required materials before the appropriate deadline for either transfer or first-year freshman admission.

We encourage students to apply electronically. If you intend to use Yellow Ribbon benefits to pay for your Rensselaer education, we require you to indicate your eligibility on the application in order to include you on our list of prospective Yellow Ribbon scholarship recipients.

All application materials should be sent to:

Rensselaer Admissions
Undergraduate Programs
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
110 Eighth Street
Troy, New York 12180-3590

3. Apply for VA Educational Benefits.

Once you have applied for your benefits, you will receive a Certificate of Eligibility which you will need to submit to Mike Bayer, the School Certifying Official, at bayerm@rpi.edu  or (518) 276-6996.

If you are eligible to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits, please note that we offer a Yellow Ribbon scholarship of $15,000 per year to up to 75 students at a time. We provide this scholarship on a first-come, first-served basis on the order of enrollment deposit date for students who self-identify as Yellow Ribbon-eligible on their application for admission. Students who do not indicate that they may be eligible will be placed on a waitlist for the scholarship.

Please note that a Yellow Ribbon recipient is not eligible to receive other Rensselaer scholarship or grant aid programs.

If you have any questions, please contact Eric Ouellette, Veterans’ Admissions Coordinator, at ouelle@rpi.edu or (518) 276-2082.
