Post 9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program

Willamette University is proud to continue its participation in the VA's Yellow Ribbon Program. This program funds tuition and fee expenses that exceed the maximum amount paid by the Post 9/11 GI Bill. The institution may contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount. Students who are 100% eligible for benefits under the 9/11 GI Bill may apply to Willamette University's Yellow Ribbon Program by contacting the university's Veteran Certifying Official, Sarah Fisher at registrar@willamette.edu. Openings in the Yellow Ribbon Program vary by school and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The VA makes tuition and fee payments directly to the university; book and housing allowances are paid directly to the student.
