Yellow Ribbon GI Program
Your service pays off.
All military personnel and veterans are eligible to use approved GI benefits at Vanderbilt. In addition, eligible veterans can attend Vanderbilt University at a significantly reduced cost thanks to the school’s participation in the Yellow Ribbon GI Educational Enhancement Program.
Under the Yellow Ribbon Program, a part of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, colleges and universities can work with the federal government to offer reduced tuition and fees to veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. To be eligible, veterans must have served three years on active duty or at least 30 continuous days before being discharged for service-related injuries since the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks.
A $10,000 annual tuition discount from both Vanderbilt and the government, totaling $20,000 per year will be available for veterans who enroll in the Owen Graduate School of Management.
