Federal DVA Yellow Ribbon Program

Loyola University Maryland participates in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program).

Students entitled to receive 100% benefits payable under the Post-9/11 GI Bill program may be eligible to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program. The Yellow Ribbon Program applies to tuition and mandatory fees. The Post-9/11 GI Bill® provides for room, board, books and supplies separately. Eligibility is determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

The Yellow Ribbon Program allows Loyola to have a matching agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) to pay veterans’ tuition and fee costs above those covered by the GI Bill ® benefit. The maximum tuition and fees benefit available for the 2023-24 academic year is $27,120.05. Under the Yellow Ribbon Program, a student's remaining tuition and fees are covered one-half by Loyola University and one-half by the DVA. 

Students who qualify for the 100% maximum tuition benefit through Yellow Ribbon and the Loyola and DVA matching grants will forfeit Loyola funded merit, non-need-based and need-based grants previously awarded or for which they would otherwise be considered. Students receiving partial benefits may also experience a change in institutionally funded awards.
