Thank you for your service!
Troy University has pledged continued support of military veterans and active-duty personnel attending college by providing maximum tuition assistance allowed through a program associated with the Post 9/11 G.I Bill called the Yellow Ribbon Program.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill or CH33 is an education benefit program for individuals who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001. The Post-9/11 GI Bill allows for a tuition and fee benefit to be paid directly to Troy University, a monthly stipend to the service member and a book stipend of up to a $1,000 per academic year.
The University has pledged to close any gap between the benefits provided under the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 and the cost of tuition at Troy University by paying 50 percent of the established tuition and fee charges not already covered under the bill. A special provision of the bill establishes the Yellow Ribbon Program that allows colleges and universities to offer the tuition waiver. The Department of Veterans Affairs will match each additional dollar funded by the University.
The University’s Financial Aid Office stands ready to assist with any issues regarding the VA benefit programs.
