At South College, we’re a proud participant of the Post–9/11 GI bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program. We support our veterans as they transition into civilian life and help them earn a degree.
Under the Post–9/11 GI bill, up to 36 months of education benefits are payable for 15 years following your discharge. The VA will pay full in-state tuition and fees at public schools and private schools up to the national cap. Students attending private schools in their state of residence or public/private schools not in their state of residence may be eligible for additional funds under the Yellow Ribbon Program.
However, students who are eligible for the Post–9/11 GI bill are not necessary eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program. Students are only eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program if they meet the criteria for 100 percent of the maximum benefits in the Post–9/11 GI bill.
You are eligible for 100 percent of the maximum benefits in the Post–9/11 GI bill if:
- You served an aggregated period of active duty of at least 36 months after September 10, 2001 and were honorably discharged; or
- You were discharged from active duty after September 10, 2011 and continued to serve 30 continuous days after September 10, 2011; or
- You are a dependent who received benefits transferred from an eligible service member.
