Judson College is proud to be listed as a "Yellow Ribbon School."
What is Yellow Ribbon? The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement 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 (degree granting institutions) in the United States to
voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses
that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The
institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will
match the same amount as the institution.
Judson can contribute up to $2,600 per student, per year. A student must meet eligibility requirements first.
Eligibility for Yellow Ribbon A

Yellow Ribbon Assistance. Only individuals entitled to the maximum

You are a dependent eligible for
Transfer Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on a veteran's
service under the eligibility criteria listed above.
