Yellow Ribbon Program

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at www.benefits.va.gov/gibill. 

Drexel University has committed $2 million to offer free education to an unlimited number of military veterans across all of the University's full- and part-time undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, and professional programs — both on campus and online — as part of its participation in the new GI Bill's® Yellow Ribbon Program.

In the program, a partnership between the federal government and Drexel, the University will match the government's contribution to the cost of an education, allowing eligible veterans to attend Drexel with no out-of-pocket expenses.

The benefits of participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program at Drexel include:

  • Tuition and fees covered 100%
  • Allowance for books
  • No cap on the number of Yellow Ribbon participants.
  • All programs on all campuses and online are available to Yellow Ribbon participants.
  • If you are currently active duty and have served at least 90 days, you can receive a tuition benefit based on how long you've served (you will need to review the information about receiving benefits while active duty at the Post-9/11 GI Bill® Education Benefits website).
  • In some instances, you may transfer your benefits to your spouse or child (you will need to review the information about transferring benefits found at the GI Bill® website).
