Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The Post-9/11 GI Bill pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition and fees. The Adler School has voluntarily entered into agreement with the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed those already covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Who is eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program?

Eligible veterans include veterans who have:

  • Served at least 36 months of active duty after September 10th, 2001
  • Served at least 30 continuous days after September 10th, 2001 and were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-related disability

Dependents of veterans may also be eligible to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits if the veteran is eligible to transfer his or her entitlement in the program. Learn more about veteran benefits.

Students eligible for US veteran's benefits should consult with the Office of Financial Aid. All funds are processed according to Title 38, Sections 1651 and 1701, of the State Approval Agency for Veteran's Education.
