Yellow Ribbon Program
The King’s College is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, an initiative designed to assist those who served in the military during the post-9/11 era, or their dependents, attend the college of their choice.
To participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program you must qualify for 100% benefits under the Post 9/11 GI Bill® and you must not be on active duty or a spouse using transferred entitlement. This determination is made by the Department of VA.
You may be eligible if you:
- served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001, of at least 36 months;
- were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and you served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001;
- are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 G Bill based on a veteran’s service under the criteria listed above.
For students who are determined by the Department of VA to be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program, the VA will provide the first $21,970 toward the cost of your education at The King’s College. The VA and The King’s College have entered into an agreement to cost-share and cover the remaining balance of your annual cost of tuition. This means that a student who is eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program is able to attend The King’s College without paying any tuition.
Eligible students planning to use Yellow Ribbon Program benefits should notify their Admissions Counselor at the time of application.
