Financial Assistance for Veterans
In 2012 Yale University updated its Yellow Ribbon Program agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, significantly increasing the university’s contribution to the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill. The Post-9/11 G.I. Bill provides financial assistance to America’s newest military veterans seeking higher education.
Several schools at Yale, including SOM, have lifted the cap on recipients and/or raised the size of the per-student contribution. SOM has doubled its contribution to $10,000.
GMAC has named Yale SOM a “Military Friendly School” because SOM waives the application fee for veterans and offers enrollment deferrals to military candidates who are currently deployed in action.
Yale SOM participates in the West Point Memorandum of Agreement, which provides reduced tuition for candidates who return to West Point after graduation to teach leadership.
