Ridgewater College recognizes and thanks veterans for their service to our country. We are committed to helping veterans succeed in their educational pursuits.
Ridgewater College is approved by the Minnesota State Approving Agency for 老兵 教育 Benefits.
Veterans, dependents of veterans, National Guardsmen, or reservists who are eligible for educational benefits from the U.S. Department of 老兵 Affairs must contact the ridgewater VA certifying official for certification. Recipients will be given instructions and the forms necessary to apply for benefits. Contact should be made at least 45 days prior to the first day of attendance as processing time may take six to eight weeks.
A person applying for VA benefits needs to complete a 22-1990 form. Along with this form, a certified copy of the DD-214 for prior active duty and a Notice of Basic Eligibility (NOBE) form for National Guard is required to process the application.

Please contact the VA certifying official in the financial aid office for further information. Because certain veterans and their children may be eligible for benefits under the GI Bill and other laws, all veterans, war orphans and children of disabled veterans must notify the admissions/counseling office of their status at the time of their application.
老兵 Resource Center
Ridgewater has great resources on campus for veterans, current military and their family members. We participate in the Minnesota Department of 老兵 Affairs (MDVA), Higher 教育 老兵 Program. As part of this program, an MDVA regional coordinator visits the Veteran Resource Center on both campuses to assist veterans.
