Yellow Ribbon Program

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) benefits and not on active duty to gain additional funding for their tuition and fees. For the 2018-2019 academic year there are 90 spots for undergraduate and 30 spots for graduate students to have access to these funds. 

Currently, Seattle University contributes $12,000 and is equally matched by the VA to allow Undergraduate students to receive a total of $24,000 in additional aid. For Graduate students, Seattle University contributes $5,000 and is equally matched by the VA to allow students to receive $10,000 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, SU Grants). 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 Works

The Yellow Ribbon list is a first come, first served basis for both undergraduate and graduate students. Once all spots 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) a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility and 3) a copy of your DD-214 member-4 (if you are the Veteran).

Once all three parts are in place you will be able to start using Yellow Ribbon at Seattle University.
