Yellow Ribbon Program

For the 2015-2016 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 $21,084.89 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 and 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:

  • Undergraduates - 260
  • Graduates - no longer eligible
  • Law - no longer eligible

To be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program:

  • You must be approved by the VA to receive Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits at the 100% level. If your eligibility percentage is below 100%, you are not eligible to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
  • In order to apply you must have at least nine months of benefits. You must have entitlement left. (You will continue to use entitlement under the Post 9/11 GI Bill while participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program.)
