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.
- 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.
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.
