Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Yellow Ribbon Program:

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has entered into an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) to participate in the Post 9/11 Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) to fund the tuition and fees cost that exceeds the basic tuition and fees amount payable by VA.

If a school participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, VA will match each dollar the school contributes up to 50% of the difference between the basic tuition and fees amount payable by VA and the tuition and fee amount charged the student. The combined school and VA contribution can't exceed the tuition and fee amount charged the student.

The Yellow Ribbon Program payment is paid directly to the school on behalf of the student when the school's enrollment certification is processed.

  • Only individuals entitled at the 100% benefit level may receive Yellow Ribbon funding
  • Students who served at least 36 months or more on active duty
  • Students who served at least 30 continuous days on active duty, and were discharged due to service-connected disability
  • Transfer of Entitlement dependent (TOE) of a service person or veteran eligible at the maximum benefit rate (100%)

The following are not eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program:

  • Active Duty personnel
  • Spouses of Active Duty personnel using Transferred Entitlement
  • Fry Scholarship recipients
