Yellow Ribbon Program
Northeastern is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program at the highest level possible. We have invested $2 million overall to offer each student up to $30,000 per year, depending on his or her degree program.
If the cost of your tuition and fees exceed the maximum annual Post-9/11 GI Bill® payment, you can apply to the program to cover your additional expenses.
You may be eligible if:
- You served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001 of at least 36 months;
- You were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and you served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001;
- You 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.
To note: Active military members and their spouses are not eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program. They may transfer their eligibility to their children, however.
