(Have your DD-214 copy 4 and VA Certificate of Eligibility at hand, or call for assistance if you don't have those documents.) Also, Nazareth participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which provides additional education aid from the College and the federal VA for qualified veterans. Those who don't qualify may be eligible for a Nazareth scholarship. Nazareth students and recent alumni also get free memberships in SALT financial literacy program.
