Yellow Ribbon Program & Financial Assistance

The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the law that was created by the Post-9/11 GI Bill® that allows institutions to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the in-state undergraduate tuition rates. Students must apply for the Yellow Ribbon Program and must meet the following criteria to qualify:

  • Classified by the University as a non-Oklahoma resident.
  • Veteran permanently separated from active duty more than 5 years.
  • Veterans (or dependents under Transfer of Entitlement) at the 100% benefit level qualify.
  • Active duty members and spouses are not eligible for the program.

Yellow Ribbon participants are required to maintain continuous enrollment each semester and must maintain satisfactory academic progress towards completion of your program.
