Yellow Ribbon at SU:
Seattle University currently participates in the Yellow
Ribbon Program. This is a program that allows students who are at 100% Chapter
33 (Post 9/11 GI Bill) and not on active
duty, benefits to gain additional funding for their tuition and fees. For the
2013-2014 academic year there are 80 spots for undergraduate and 30 spots for
graduate students to have access to these funds.
Currently, Seattle University contributes $8,000 and is
equally matched by the VA to allow Undergraduate students to receive a
total of $16,000 in additional aid. Seattle University contributes $4,000 and
is equally matched by the VA to allow Graduate students to receive
$8,000 in additional aid.
If you are eligible and receive institutional aid, you are
only able to receive Yellow Ribbon or institutional aid (ex. Merit
scholarships). We will always choose the option that best for the student, so
if you were to receive more in other institutional aid than Yellow Ribbon that
is what will be awarded to you.
How Yellow Ribbon
The Yellow Ribbon list is a first come, first served basis
for both undergraduate and graduate students. Once a list fills up, a waiting
list is started and monitored each quarter. If you are on the waiting list, you
will be notified once a spot opens up and if you are still interested/able to
receive Yellow Ribbon benefits.
In order to get on the list we need three things: 1) you are
a confirmed student with Seattle University. This means you have been accepted
and you have then confirmed that acceptance; 2) your Certificate of Eligibility
and 3) your DD-214 (if you are the Veteran).
Once all three parts are in place you will be good to go to
start using Yellow Ribbon at Seattle University.
To have a better understanding about how your money will be
applied, please see the outline of a sample bill below based off of the
2013-2014 tuition and fees:
