Veterans

At Delaware Law, we welcome men and women who have served or are currently serving in any branch of the United States armed forces. Your character, drive, and commitment are assets that will transfer readily to law school.

 

Delaware Law provides guidance and support, both personal and academic, during the admissions and financial aid processes. Delaware Law participates in educational benefit programs offered through the Department of Veteran's Affairs. Montgomery GI Bill and Post-9/11 GI Bill benefit programs are available to qualified veterans for attendance at Delaware Law. We also participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which offers matching tuition assistance for up to ten JD students.

The Registrar's Office will certify completion of the required VA paperwork. Follow the enrollment checklist to ensure that all necessary paperwork has been completed and submitted for each academic year.
