Unlock the Potential of an Affordable Education

Post-9/11 GI Bill

The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial assistance to America’s military veterans and their families seeking higher education. The GI Bill can be applied to any of our programs and makes it affordable to get your MBA. Depending on your percentage of eligibility and length of entitlement, the GI Bill can cover all tuition and fees minus any program costs.

We Are a Yellow Ribbon School

Beginning in the Fall of 2020, the University of Florida was approved to participate in the Yellow Ribbon program for eligible Post 9/11 GI Bill recipients. The Yellow Ribbon program is a provision of the Post 9/11 GI Bill to help defray the cost of out-of-state fees. The University of Florida will contribute up to $6,500 per academic year towards these charges. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will then match the amount of the UF contribution.

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Funding is available for a select group of graduate students who have been chosen as Yellow Ribbon recipients. For more information, contact Student Veteran Services by email.
