Yellow Ribbon Program Agreement Deadline Is May 15

May 09, 2012


​Colleges and universities have until May 15 to submit the new open-ended Yellow Ribbon Program agreements for the 2012-13 academic year to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Once an institution’s agreement is accepted by VA, it will be considered an open-ended agreement in effect for the upcoming academic year and all future years unless VA or the institution notifies the other party that changes are requested.

The Yellow Ribbon Program is part of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and allows higher education institutions to enter into voluntary agreements with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed either the annual maximum cap for private institutions or the resident tuition and fees for public institutions.
