Yellow Ribbon Program
The Yellow Ribbon GI Education 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, such as Franklin University, to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. Franklin University has entered into an agreement with the VA to match up to 50 percent of those expenses, and the VA will match the same amount as Franklin University, making veterans’ out of pocket expense $0.
