“The flexibility and availability makes learning while working, and returning to school much easier. I had a lot to catch up on but the material and ease of use of the programs made it a simple transition for me to get back in school and finish my degree.”

What about Yellow Ribbon?

“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 either the annual maximum cap for private institutions or the resident tuition and fees for a public institution. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution.” (Source:

This program is designed to supplement the costs of your degree above and beyond your G.I. Benefits.  Please reach out to our department of Veterans Programs and Services to speak to a professional about your benefits and your Certificate of Eligibility.  Once that step is complete, they should be able to walk you through the process of applying for the Yellow Ribbon program if you qualify.
