Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows private degree-granting institutions of higher learning in the U.S. to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund up to 50% of the gap, if any, between an eligible student’s primary Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) benefit and the annual cost of tuition and fees. Yellow Ribbon matches whatever amount the school contributes.

A veteran must be receiving 100% Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) benefits and not be on active duty in order to be eligible for Yellow Ribbon benefits. View all eligibility guidelines and benefit requirements for Post-9/11 benefits.
