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.
HOW IT WORKS
- 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, $19,198.31 for an academic year (fall, spring and summer).
- Once the $19,198.31 is used up, GGU provides a grant of up to 50% of tuition costs (not to exceed $12,000 per trimester).
- The Veterans Administration matches the other 50%.
- An eligible Veteran may incur no tuition costs out of pocket.
100% Chapter 33 allocation is:
|Fall semester tuition is:||- $12,000|
|Spring semester tuition is:||- $12,000|
|Balance owing is:||- $4,801.69|
GGU pays 50%:
VA pays 50%:
|There is no cost to the Veteran. If the Veteran attends summer, all the tuition will be covered up to $24,000. 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.
