Yellow Ribbon Program

Yellow Ribbon is a provision of the Post 9/11 GI Bill® that allows out of state students to receive additional funding above the in-state cap. The GI Bill® will cover the in-state portion of a student's tuition and Yellow Ribbon will provide up to $2000 more per semester. Because this award is only for out of state students, veterans attending classes on campus do not need to apply; they are eligible to be billed as in-state students. You can read more about the program on the VA’s website here.

Yellow Ribbon: VU pays up to $1,000 a semester and the VA matches this amount for a total of up to $2,000 a semester or up to $4,000 per academic year.

  • Must be billed as an out of state student
  • Student must be 100% eligible for the GI Bill®
  • We will not retroactively award Yellow Ribbon
