In gratitude for your service to our nation, every year since 2011-12 and again for 2018-19, UIW is a Yellow Ribbon School for the eligible 100% Post 9-11 students and may fund the tuition and fee expenses that exceed the VA national annual maximum allotted to private institutions.
The Yellow Ribbon Program allows private schools to enter into an agreement with the VA to fund the tuition and fee costs that exceeds the yearly national cap of $23.671.94 for students enrolled in private institutions (after August 1, 2018). The Yellow Ribbon Program is utilized in conjunction with student's Post 9-11 GI Bill and funds are paid directly to the school when the enrollment certification is processed. UIW will match the 50% VA contribution and fund 50% of the remaining unmet tuition & fee charges for all eligible students.
