Yellow Ribbon Program

What is the Yellow Ribbon Program?The Seal of the Department of Veterans Affairs

NC State University has voluntarily elected to fund a portion of graduate or undergraduate tuition and fees that are over and above the amount covered under the Chapter 33 veterans benefits under the GI Bill. We value the contributions of our veteran students. As part of a campus-wide effort to ease the transition from military to civilian life, we hope providing this funding will both reduce some of the stress associated with returning to school, and help us show our appreciation to those who have served.

For the 2011-2012 academic year, NC State is committed to extend Yellow Ribbon Program funds to 50 students on a first-come/first-served basis. The university will pay $4000 per year of the difference between tuition and fee charges and the amount covered by the GI Bill, Chapter 33. The VA will match these Yellow Ribbon funds. Yellow Ribbon funding will be available in the Fall and Spring semesters.
