The Post 9/11 GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon Program

The Chapter 33 or Post 9/11 GI Bill® is an education benefit for veterans with active military service on or after September 11, 2001. Chapter 33 allows for the transfer of unused educational benefits to one’s spouse or children. Chapter 33 provides a housing allowance (if you are enrolled at least half-time), as well as support for tuition, fees, books and supplies. Answers to questions, regarding eligibility for this program and payment rates, may be found at www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.

Corban University is also proud to announce their participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Students with 100% eligibility under Chapter 33 are eligible for this benefit. At this time, ALL students who are eligible for the program will receive a Yellow Ribbon scholarship. This scholarship is then matched by the VA. In most cases, this means that the full cost of tuition and fees is covered.
