Yellow Ribbon Program at Columbia College
The Yellow Ribbon Program was established by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition and fee expenses not covered by the Post- 9/11 GI Bill.
Columbia College students who qualify for 100% of the Post-9/11 GI Bill will have the opportunity to use the Yellow Ribbon Program to pay for tuition costs not covered by the Post -9/11 GI Bill, Chapter 33. All eligible veterans will be fully covered for the 2013-14 school year.
Contact the Ousley Family Veterans Service Center for details at (800)231-2391 ext 7504.
Additional information about the Post-9/11 GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program may be found on the Department of Veterans Affairs website.
