Yellow Ribbon Program
About the Program
The Post 9/11 GI Bill ® (Chapter 33) provides up to $18077.50 for school year 2012-2013 for net tuition and fees. (Up to $19,138.31 for the 2013-2014 schoool year.)
The Yellow Ribbon Program is offered to eligible veterans and transferred eligibility dependents with a Post 9/11 GI Bill ® (Chapter 33) benefit eligibility of 100%.
The VA will pay reported net tuition and fees from the Post 9/11 GI Bill ® (Chapter 33) funds first. Once the full school year tuition funds are expended, the Yellow Ribbon Program covers any remaining eligible net tuition and fees in that school year.
The VA has agreed to share the Yellow Ribbon Program funding by paying matching funds: 50:50. This agreement allows Champlain College's Yellow Ribbon Scholarship to be matched by the VA Yellow Ribbon Program benefits, resulting in free tuition for qualifying veterans and dependents.
Champlain College has committed to an unlimited number and size of Yellow Ribbon Program scholarships.
Veterans and dependants provide their VA certificate of eligibility (COE) showing 100% eligibility to the Veterans Service Office. The Yellow Ribbon Program will be applied to the qualified student's account automatically.
