Yellow Ribbon Program Agreement
The Yellow Ribbon program offered by VA allows degree-granting Institutions of Higher Learning in the United States (colleges/universities) to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition and fee expenses not covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill for out-of-state students or those attending a private institution. The institution can contribute a specified dollar amount of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution, not to exceed 50 percent of the difference.
Wheeling University’s contributions:
- Undergraduate: (100 students) $9,999.00
- Graduate: (25 students) $1,500.00
- Doctoral: (0 students) $0
