UNC Kenan-Flagler Veterans

Veteran Applicants

If you serve in the military, or if you’re a veteran, thank you for service. And, congratulations; your time in the military has provided you with experiences, perspectives, and leadership skills that the business world values. You’ll also leverage this experience as you pursue your MBA as the rigor and discipline that you’ve acquired will serve you well in the classroom.

We are a Military Friendly® school and proudly participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program. More importantly, we’re proud to welcome numerous students with military experience to our diverse community, and invite you to learn more about the resources for active duty military and veterans at UNC Kenan-Flagler.

No application fee

We waive the application fees for all U.S. military service members — active duty and veterans. Indicating your military experience in your application will activate the fee waiver, which will be applied after you submit your application. In some cases, supporting documentation may be requested. Unfortunately, refunds cannot be issued for application fees already paid.

Tuition benefits

UNC-Chapel Hill, including UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School, is approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs as a training facility for students receiving military education benefits. We are proud participants in the Yellow Ribbon Program for students who don’t qualify for in-state tuition. We support Post 9/11 GI Bill®. And, we comply with the Veterans Choice Act.

To confirm your eligibility for Yellow Ribbon benefits, apply for financial support through the VA to secure a Certificate of Eligibility. Once you’re admitted to UNC Kenan-Flagler, you’ll submit your Certificate of Eligibility and Yellow Ribbon Application to our MBA Veterans Affairs Specialist.
