Educational Opportunities for Veterans

The University of Pennsylvania is approved for training veterans, spouses of deceased veterans, and children of veterans under the appropriate public laws. All students who wish to obtain educational benefits under these laws must register with the Office of the Registrar at the time of enrollment at the University. Veteran registration must be renewed at the beginning of each subsequent semester and each summer session.

Veterans who are planning to transfer from another institution must complete a Request for Change of Place of Training form. This form, as well as additional information about educational opportunities for veterans, may be obtained by contacting the University Veterans Coordinator at 215-898-1561 or by visiting the Registrar’s Office in person. The School of Social Policy and Practice also participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. Veterans eligible for the Yellow Ribbon program must submit their Certificate of Eligibility to the Registrar’s office.

More information is available through Penn’s Student Registration & Financial Services.

Wanda Rothmiller is the Yellow Ribbon and V.A. Benefit Certification contact for the University of Pennsylvania. Ms. Rothmiller’s contact information is 215-898-6636 and wmr@sfs.upenn.edu.

Please note that the combination of any SP2 scholarship and veteran funding cannot exceed the cost of tuition and general fees.
