Serving Those Who Served Our Country
Northeastern is dedicated to making education affordable for veterans and our military students, and is proud to participate in the federal government’s Yellow Ribbon Program at the highest level possible.
The university has invested $2 million into the Yellow Ribbon Program to help post-9/11 veterans meet the cost of completing or continuing their education. Our commitment allows nearly 500 veterans to attend the university each year at little or no cost to them. If you are a veteran at 100 percent entitlement, Northeastern and the VA will each pay up to 50 percent of the tuition charges—up to an additional $20,000 per academic year for graduate students.
Prospective military students might be eligible if they:
- Served an aggregate period of duty after September 10, 2001, of at least 36 months
- Were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001
- Are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria listed above
Veterans from any state are eligible to attend Northeastern and receive Yellow Ribbon funding. To learn more about how to apply for the Yellow Ribbon Program, visit Northeastern’s Military website.
