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 the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. For the 20010/11 academic year, Thomas Jefferson School of Law agrees to fund the maximum 50% of the tuition cost, with a corresponding match from VA.
All eligible vets must give the Financial Aid Office a VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to ensure program participation. According to VA regulations, vets must be 100% eligible to participate in Yellow Ribbon. Spouses of vets may also be eligible and should contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
