Military Benefits

We are honored to support the men and women who have dedicated their lives in service to this country. We want to make affording a Gordon graduate degree as simple as possible for you. Here’s how we can help:

Access your provided Department of Education Memorandum of Understanding (DoD MOU) Tuition Assistance (TA) through your branch to put towards your M.S. in Financial Analysis degree. While every branch has a slightly different Tuition Assistance program established, we can help you find the answers you need.

Here are a few branch specific resources for you to get started. 

There are two approved programs that may be of interest to you in helping bring the cost of your education down.

  • The GI Bill® provides financial support if you’ve served at least 90 days (in aggregate) on or after September 11, 2001. How much you’re eligible for is based on your length of service. The GI Bill® assists with tuition and fees (up to $22,805 per academic year) as well as providing a housing allowance and books/supplies allowance (up to $1,000 annually).
  • The Yellow Ribbon Program provides qualifying veterans, or the qualifying dependents of veteran's tuition assistance. Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) benefits are available only if you are eligible for the 100 percent payment tier for the GI Bill®. Gordon participates in the YRP without limitation on the number of veterans enrolled. If you are YRP-eligible, we contribute $2,500 to fund tuition and fees, and the VA matches that at $2,500. As stipulated by the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program is determined on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is important to complete the application as early as possible.

Combine YRP and GI Bill® benefits together at Gordon and the majority of your costs are covered. Things may vary from veteran to veteran, depending on your personal situation, so if you have any questions, please contact Gordon Admissions at .

Once you've been accepted and you're ready to begin, learn more about the billing schedule and the convenient ways you can make your payments.


Employer Partnerships

We encourage you to make the most of your workplace benefits by asking your HR department whether your current benefits exist to support your graduate school endeavors. If not, ask if your employer would consider starting to offer graduate school benefits.

If you are a student or business leader, consider helping your organization become a partner with Gordon College. As a partner, employees can receive substantive educational partnership scholarships (up to $6,000) to help make an advanced degree possible. Schedule a time to talk about helping your organization become a partner to receive these benefits.
