Post 9/11 GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon Program for Veterans

University of the Sciences is proud to continue our participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program for those students who are eligible to receive 100% tuition benefit from the Post 9-11 GI Bill. The University will contribute the necessary amount to ensure the student’s entire tuition and general fee are covered with other grant and scholarship funding, for students who document their eligibility with the Financial Aid Office.

To request consideration for the Yellow Ribbon Program, submit a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility from the Department of Veteran’s Affairs to the Director of Financial Aid at University of the Sciences. This award is provided on a 'first come first served' basis to a maximum of 25 eligible students, regardless of your degree seeking program.

For Veterans and their transferees:tuition awards are subject to the annual tuition cap (based on your eligibility level) for private schools established by the Department of Veterans Affairs.Only those students eligible for 100% of the tuition cap are eligible to be considered for the Yellow Ribbon Program.Your funding level should be designated on your Certificate of Eligibility.

Please be aware that, in the event that you had previously received a financial aid package from the University, GI Bill benefits and 'Yellow Ribbon' participation supersedes any initial or previously awarded University grants, and may affect other financial aid eligibility.
