AllHealthcareDegrees.com is proud to be partnered with schools that offer the Yellow Ribbon Program. Below is a brief explanation of the program, as provided by the White House. Please consult with the Department of Veterans Affairs for individual eligibility information. Schools should also be contacted directly for their Yellow Ribbon Program details.
The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. (US Dept of Veterans Affairs)

Benefits of the Yellow Ribbon Program

According to the U.S. Dept of Veteran Affairs, the Post-9/11 GI Bill will pay you:

  • all resident tuition & fees for a public school
  • the lower of the actual tuition & fees or the national maximum per academic year for a private school

Your actual tuition & fees costs may exceed these amounts if you are attending a private school or are attending a public school as a nonresident student.

Institutions of Higher Learning (Degree Granting Institutions) may elect to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to your GI Bill entitlement.

Degree-granting institutions of higher learning participating in the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program agree to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to your GI Bill entitlement. These institutions voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with VA and choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed. VA matches that amount and issues payments directly to the institution.
