Enrollment: Veterans Benefits
YELLOW RIBBON PROGRAM
Golden Gate University is in the top 15% nationwide of colleges and universities who have committed to a large dollar grant to the Yellow Ribbon Program for our country's Veterans to start or complete their educational goals.
- The Veteran must submit their DD 214 and all pages of their COE (Certificate of Eligibility) to the University Financial Aid Office.
- The Veteran must be fully admitted to GGU (either full admission or conditional admission) and enrolled in classes.
- The Veteran's Administration provides each eligible Veteran, who has 100% of Chapter 33 benefits, $21,970.46 for academic year 2016 - 2017 (fall, spring and summer).
- Once the $21,970.46 is used up, Golden Gate University (GGU) provides a grant of up to 50% of tuition costs (not to exceed $14,000 per trimester).
- The Veterans Administration (VA) matches the other 50%.
- An eligible Veteran may incur no tuition costs out of pocket.
EXAMPLE: 2016 - 2017
GRADUATE(9 units / term)
UNDERGRADUATE(12 units / term)
CHAPTER 33 ASSISTANCE
YELLOW RIBBON ASSISTANCE(for summer term)
|If the Veteran attends summer, all tuition will be covered up to $28,000.
Satisfactory academic progress criteria apply both at the institution level and with the VA for benefits to continue.
GGU tuition discounts and/or scholarships/grants are applied towards a portion of tuition costs only and may not be on top of the Post 9/11 and Yellow Ribbon. Students may not receive GGU tuition discounts and/or GGU scholarships/grants on top of the 100% tuition coverage by the Post 9/11 and Yellow Ribbon benefits.
The Veterans Administration determines the Veterans eligibility and issues a Certificate of Eligibility which must be submitted to GGU by the Veteran.
