Yellow Ribbon G.I. Education Enhancement Program

Eligibility Information

Only veterans entitled to the 100% Post 9/11 benefit rate (based on service requirements) or their designated transferees may receive this 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% rate).

Awarding

The award is issued each fall term on a first-come, first-served basis. First-come, first-served is measured from the date the required forms are submitted to the USC Veterans Certification Office. The number of recipients depends on award availability and program participation, therefore, the award is not guaranteed.

Continued Eligibility for Yellow Ribbon Benefit Recipients:

  • Remain in good academic standing with USC
  • All VA certified courses must be degree applicable
  • Remain eligible for Post 9/11 benefits
  • Continue submitting the Application for Semester Entitlement (ASE)
  • ASE form can only be submitted after you register for classes each term
  • Submit all required documents in the “How to File” section
