Marlboro College is proud of its legacy of serving military veterans. Founding president Walter Hendricks' experience teaching World War II veterans in Biarritz was a key inspiration for founding Marlboro. Thanks to the first GI Bill, 35 of the college's first 50 graduates were veterans. Their contributions, both intellectually and physically, shaped Marlboro's self-directed, self-governed and self-reliant identity.
Both our undergraduate and graduate school programs are VA-approved and the Yellow Ribbon Program has enabled a new generation of veterans and their families to attend private colleges like Marlboro.

“Marlboro is an extraordinary place,” says Mike McIvor '15, a navy veteran. “It has a lot to offer veterans and I think that there are veterans out there who have a lot to offer Marlboro. The veterans I know here do well—they bring a work ethic and sense of perspective that places them ahead of the curve.”
