"I attended University of Baltimore on the GI Bill after returning from Vietnam. The discipline that I gained in the military, coupled with the University's commitment to veterans' re-entry into civilian life, enabled me to be successful in my studies and beyond. The Bob Parsons Veterans Center provides the facilities, staff and programs which will allow the University to exponentially increase their reach and make veteran advocacy part of their core mission." —Bob Parsons, B.S. '75, D.H.L. '08, founder and executive chairman of Go Daddy. Parsons helped the University establish The Bob Parsons Veterans Center through The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation.
UB is part of the Yellow Ribbon Program, an agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed those payable under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. UB will offer $1,000 to 10 qualified students, and the VA will match those funds.
UB's Military Friendly School ranking indicates the University is among the top 20 percent of schools nationwide in delivering an outstanding experience for military students.
As a UB student, you can join ROTC as part of our partnership with The Johns Hopkins University. You'll get 100 percent of your college tuition paid for, and when you graduate you'll be commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army.
UB is among a select group of universities in full compliance with the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, which ensures in-state tuition to veterans and their qualified family members.
