At Briar Cliff, we are proud to offer a 100-percent matching Yellow Ribbon program for eligible military service members, veterans and dependents. We also accept all chapters of military benefits and all state programs such as National Guard Education Assistance and Army/Air Force Tuition Assistance.
Our Yellow Ribbon Agreement with the VA means we agree that 100 percent of your tuition and fees will be paid for between your Post-9/11 GI Bill and Briar Cliff University’s Yellow Ribbon matching program.
Please contact our VA Certifying Official or Financial Aid Office for additional information regarding eligibility and how the program will work for you or your qualifying dependent.
TUITION & FEES FOR 2017-2018 FULL-TIME STUDENTS: $29,890
You may be eligible if:
Only veterans entitled to the maximum benefit rate (based on service requirements) or their designated transferees may receive Yellow Ribbon funding. Active duty service members and their spouses are not eligible for this program (child transferees of active duty service members may be eligible if the service member is qualified at the 100-percent rate).
