Yellow Ribbon Program
King’s College actively participates in The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the annual maximum cap for private institutions.
Who is eligible?
Only veterans entitled to the maximum benefit rate, as determined by service requirements, or their designated transferees may receive this funding. Active duty service members and their spouses are not eligible for this program. Child transferees of active duty service members may be eligible if the service member is qualified at the 100 percent rate.
King’s College participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. You do not have to apply for the Yellow Ribbon Program. If you are eligible, you will be identified internally and evaluated by the college’s SCO and the Office of Financial Aid.
