Marlboro College is honored to be a top choice for military veterans pursing their higher educational goals. At Marlboro, our mission is to teach students to think clearly and to learn independently, and this is best done in a diverse academic community. Veterans are an integral part of our community, and Marlboro deeply respects their service and sacrifice. Each member of our community is committed to helping student veterans take responsibility for their own education through an individualized course of study that is firmly grounded in the liberal arts.
Both our undergraduate and graduate programs are VA-approved, and the GI Bill benefits including the Yellow Ribbon Program have enabled many veterans and their family members to attend Marlboro. If you are interested in applying, consult the general application requirements or contact the admissions office at 800-343-0049. Discover how the GI Bill can help provide for your own education, and find other special information for veterans, below.
Marlboro College is proud of its institutional history of being a veteran-friendly campus. In fact, 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. We welcome your contribution as well.
