Main Document

Drexel University will renew its Yellow Ribbon Program for Post 9/11 Veterans in the fall term. The Yellow Ribbon program allows for 100 percent of tuition to be covered for eligible veterans and their designated dependents.

Drexel matches the government's contribution toward the cost of an education, allowing eligible veterans and their dependents to attend the University with no out-of-pocket expenses - the federal government will pay a base tuition rate and any remaining cost will be covered by the government and Drexel, offering eligible service-persons a free education.

Additionally, Drexel provides a $5,000 per year Veteran's Award to full-time undergraduate veterans who may not be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon program and a 15 percent discount in tuition for veterans and their family members who are enrolled in online programs.

The University's contribution allows veterans who meet government and admissions requirements to receive a completely free education at all of Drexel's colleges and schools, including the Drexel University College of Medicine, Earle Mack School of Law, Drexel at Burlington County College and the Sacramento Center for Graduate Studies.

A special office, Veteran Student Services, has been established to better serve students in the program.

Drexel also established a Veteran Student Task force to make veterans' entry into the University as smooth as possible, address their personal and academic needs and utilize their experiences to educate current, non-military students.

The Yellow Ribbon program is open to veterans who served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001 of at least 36 months or were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001.

Veterans who served shorter periods of time or prior to 2001 may be eligible for significant educational assistance under other G.I. Bill programs and they are encouraged to check with the Veterans Administration regarding their eligibility.
