Yellow Ribbon Program
For the 2016-2017 academic year, Baylor University will participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program at the 50% rate of net tuition and mandatory fees. Tuition and mandatory fees less the $22,805.346 VA Cap, less any scholarship award that is designated for tuition and mandatory fees, equals net tuition and mandatory fees. Baylor will pay 50% of net tuition and mandatory fees using Baylor University's merit based scholarship and any additional Yellow Ribbon funds needed. The federal government will pay the remaining 50%. Tuition and mandatory fees will be covered in full.
Participation in the Yellow Ribbon program is optional and available on a first come, first serve basis to a limited number of eligible students:
