Free GI Bill® Tool launched by the VA:

The Department of Veterans Affairs has launched a new version of the GI Bill® Comparison Tool, which was first launched in February 2014. The GI Bill® Comparison Tool is designed to make it easier for veterans, service members, and family members to estimate their GI Bill® education benefits and learn more about VA's approved college, university, and other education and training programs.

The updated version of the tool has new functionality, including a more robust GI Bill® benefits calculator and additional information pertinent to the veteran population. For more information, visit the GI Bill® Comparison Tool website.

GI Bill® Accepted:

We are also pleased to accept the GI Bill® for which a copy of the Certificate of Eligibility Letter (COE)  is required. For further information, please contact Student Financial Services, at 413.565.1256.

Yellow Ribbon Program:

We offer a limited number of Yellow Ribbon Scholarships in the amount of $3,000 which is then matched by the Department of Veterans Affairs. This program is part of the Post-9/11 GI Bill® that helps make higher education more affordable for veterans.

Dedicated Certifying Official:

Bay Path University has on staff a dedicated certifying official to guide you in using your military benefits.
