Post 9-11 GI Bill® Yellow Ribbon Program

There are different ways to finance your education. We can help you find the solution that is right for you.

To further support our veteran, active duty and reservist students, West Coast University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. This program can help you pay for tuition that may not be covered through other military benefits.

By participating in this program, WCU elects to make additional funds available for your education without an additional charge to your GI Bill® entitlement. To be eligible to potentially receive benefits under the Yellow Ribbon program, you must be eligible for the maximum benefit rate under the Post-9/11 GI Bill®.

To apply for Yellow Ribbon Program funds at West Coast University, complete and submit an application to the West Coast University Financial Aid Office. Applications are available on our website, or in the Financial Aid Office at any WCU Campus location.

Please note, up to 40 eligible students per campus will be selected and approved to receive Yellow Ribbon funding, on a first come-first served basis. More details about eligibility requirements can be found through the VA by visiting Veterans Affairs website.

The Yellow Ribbon Program payment is remitted directly to the University on behalf of the student when the University’s enrollment certification is processed.
