The Post-9/11 GI Bill ®
If you have at least 90 days of aggregate active duty service after September 10, 2001, and are still on active duty, or if you are an honorably discharged Veteran or were discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days, you may be eligible for Post-9/11 GI Bill ® benefits, administered through Veterans Affairs. Post-9/11 GI Bill ® benefits cover the cost of in-state tuition, fees, and student health insurance for candidates who are eligible.
The Yellow Ribbon Program

William & Mary is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon (YR) Program which is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher education (degree-granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed the amount payable by the VA.

The Yellow Ribbon program is designed to close the gap between the cost of your program and the in-state tuition rate covered by the GI Bill ®. Out-of-state students who qualify 100% through the Post 9/11 GI Bill ® should expect to be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program. Students will automatically be considered for this program once a copy of the Certificate of Eligibility is submitted to the Veterans Benefits Officer. For more information on Yellow Ribbon, visit the Yellow Ribbon Program website.
