Financial Assistance for Veterans

Yale SOM takes a number of active steps to ensure business school is affordable for U.S. military veterans.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial assistance to America’s newest military veterans seeking higher education. Veterans who are 100% eligible through the GI Bill will also receive Yellow Ribbon Support. Under the Yellow Ribbon Program, students who are 100% eligible through the GI Bill receive full coverage of Yale SOM tuition and fees through a combination of VA funds and a contribution from the school.

Other Programs and Benefits

Yale SOM participates in all VA educational assistance programs; current and former students have taken advantage of REAP, VEAP, and the Post-9/11 GI Bill, or have attended the school while serving on active duty. For more information on VA education benefits you may be eligible for, visit the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs website.

Yale also participates in the West Point Memorandum of Agreement, which provides reduced tuition for candidates who return to West Point after graduation to teach leadership. In addition, application fees are waived for military veterans.

In addition, application fees are waived for all U.S. military candidates.
