  • Yellow Ribbon Program

    The Yellow Ribbon Program is an agreement between ASU and the VA to provide assistance for veterans, service members and their dependents using the Post-9/11 GI Bill who do not qualify for in-state (resident) tuition rates.

    Requirements

    • Be eligible for Post-9/11 GI Bill at the100 percent rate (both veterans and dependents using transferred benefits).
    • Be an enrolled student who is not eligible for in-state tuition rates.
    • NOT be an active duty service member OR the spouse of an active duty service member.

    How to Request Funding

    Funds are limited and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. To request funds, you must:

    • Have a complete file in the VETS Center determining your eligibility for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
    • Be enrolled for one or more upcoming terms at Angelo State.
    • Complete and submit a Request for Participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program prior to the payment deadline for the semester.

    Receiving Funds

    ASU’s Yellow Ribbon agreement provides the following funds:

    • Undergraduate Students: $4,000 per year
    • Graduate Students: $2,000 per year

    We accept the first five requests for each level per year. These funds are matched by the VA and applied directly to the cost of out-of-state tuition and fees.

    Note: Yellow Ribbon funds do not typically cover all tuition and fee charges. Participants should expect to pay at least a portion of their tuition and fees each year.
