Yellow Ribbon Program
What is the Yellow Ribbon Program?
- The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the law that was created by the Post‐9/11 GI Bill (CH-33). The Program is available for institutions of higher learning (degree‐granting institutions) in the U.S. or at a branch of such institution located outside the U.S. The program allows approved institutions of higher learning and the VA to partially or fully fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the established thresholds under the Post‐9/11 GI Bill.
If I am eligible for the Post‐9/11 GI Bill, am I automatically eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program?
- No. Only Veterans (or dependents under Transfer of Entitlement) at the 100% benefit level qualify. Active duty members and spouses of active duty members are not eligible for this program. There are 5 students per semester awarded the Yellow Ribbon award for non-resident fees, please contact our office about availability.
What do I have to do to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits?
- If you meet the above requirements fill out the application below, it is a first come first serve basis because we have a limited amount of Yellow Ribbon slots available. Applications will be on file for one semester, after which you must reapply to receive the Yellow Ribbon award again.
