Yellow Ribbon Program

Temple University is a participating institution in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Veterans who are 100% eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill may also qualify for this additional educational benefit. Funding may vary on a case by case basis. For more information contact Temple’s Veterans Certification Officer at 215.204.7378.

What is the Yellow Ribbon Program? The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution.

Post-9/11 GI Bill

The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

Transfer of Post-9/11 GI Bill Benefits To Dependents (TEB): Service members enrolled in the Post-9/11 GI Bill program are able to transfer unused educational benefits to their spouses or children.
