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

The Yellow Ribbon program is a provision of the Post-9/11 GI Bill that helps defray the cost of out-of-state fees.

The University of Florida will contribute up to $6,500 per academic year towards these fees. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will match the amount of the UF contribution.
