An Introduction to the Yellow Ribbon Program and Yellow Ribbon Schools

As a current or former member of the Army, you have an array of education benefits available to you and your family. One that can be a significant help in paying for college is the Yellow Ribbon Program, a Post-9/11 GI Bill provision. The Yellow Ribbon Program is a collaboration between the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and participating colleges to provide extra funds for eligible Army personnel.

What Is the Yellow Ribbon Program?

The Post-9/11 GI Bill helps current or former members of the Army and other armed forces attend college for a reduced cost or for free. The program, in conjunction with the GI Bill, can provide up to 100 percent of the tuition, fees, and other education costs associated with earning a degree. The maximum benefit you can receive under the new GI Bill is equal to the tuition and fees at the most expensive public college in your state.

This does not mean you must attend a public school, and the Yellow Ribbon Program can help you to make up the remainder of the costs if you decide to attend a private school, go out of state, or attend an online school participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

How it works is that Yellow Ribbon schools commit to paying up to 50 percent of the tuition that isn't covered by the GI Bill. The VA then matches the school, dollar for dollar, up to 100 percent of the remaining tuition and fees.
