The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational assistance Act of 2008 (GI Bill). Under this program, the act provides payment for tuition, fees, a books and supplies stipend, and a housing allowance for veterans who have served on active duty since September 11, 2001. Colleges and universities enter into matching agreements with the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) to pay veterans’ tuition and fee costs above those covered by the GI Bill benefit. The maximum tuition and fees benefit available under the law is capped at $18,077.50. Loyola is committed to funding a student’s remaining tuition and fee expenses that exceed the additional contribution available under the Yellow Ribbon Program.
Complete information on the Yellow Ribbon Program is available on the Veterans Affairs website, www.gibill.va.gov.
