Veteran's Educational Benefits

As an approved institution for federal education benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Creighton University welcomes veterans and their eligible dependents. All degree programs in each of Creighton's nine colleges/schools are approved for students using a GI Bill.  Creighton is pleased to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program for students enrolled through the University's undergraduate colleges and graduate school.

A student must meet the academic requirements to be admitted to and enrolled at Creighton, as well as establish eligibility with the VA for education benefits.
