Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon Program is an additional benefit offered to students who are 100% eligible for the Post 9-11 benefit and are not eligible under the Choice Act to be billed resident tuition.

Active duty Service members and their spouses are not eligible for this program.

This benefit helps to alleviate the financial burden of students who are charged the out of state tuition rate and are responsible for the difference between out of state and in-state tuition. The University of Wyoming contributes a portion of the difference between out of state and in-state tuition and the VA will match that contribution, not to exceed the difference between out of state and in-state tuition.

There is a set number of dollars and slots allotted for Yellow Ribbon. This Program is on a first come first serve basis and there is an application that must be submitted along with a Certificate of Eligibility.

For additional information, please visit the VA Website.
