Yellow Ribbon

The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post 9/11 GI Bill® that allows institutions to enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition and fee costs that exceed the in-state tuition rates.  The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and the VA will match the same amount as the institution. 

Students must apply for the Yellow Ribbon Program and must meet the following criteria to qualify to be eligible for Yellow Ribbon:

  • Only individuals entitled at the 100% benefit level (or their dependents using transferred entitlement)
  • Students who served at least 36 months or more on active duty
  • Students who served at least 30 continuous days on active duty, and were discharged due to service-connected disability

The Yellow Ribbon Program is available to the first 3 eligible applicants on a first-come, first-served basis with a cap of $5,000 per academic year. Students must complete the application below and return it to the Office of Admissions and Records to be considered.

Yellow Ribbon participants are required to maintain continuous enrollment in each regular fall and spring semesters and must remain in good academic standing to remain eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program. Once accepted, you will not need to re-apply unless you do not maintain continuous enrollment or if you graduate. Any changes to the class schedule may result in an overpayment and the student will be responsible for any subsequent personal debts for overpaid funds received from the VA and to the University for any unpaid balance. The University will review annually the need to maintain its participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
