Veteran Benefit Information

Suffolk University offers qualified veterans tuition assistance of up to $25,000 per academic year through the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program.

Suffolk’s financial commitment—combined with government allowances—enables eligible veterans to cover the full cost of tuition, fees, and books in any University degree program.

Military members, veterans, and their families can learn more about programs and support for veteran students.

About Yellow Ribbon

The Yellow Ribbon program is a supplement to the Post 9/11 GI Bill that provides education benefits for veterans with at least 36 months of aggregate active duty service on or after September 11, 2001, as well as individuals with at least 30 continuous days of active duty service who have been discharged with a service-connected disability. Candidates must have also received an honorable discharge to qualify for Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.

Service members have the flexibility to transfer all or part of their earned benefits to family members. Spouses of active duty service members are not eligible for yellow ribbon funds, but dependents are eligible no matter if the service member is active duty or not.


Suffolk University students may be eligible to participate in the Yellow Ribbon and other VA education benefits programs. In such cases, Suffolk will meet any and all required VA matching funding obligations with institutional student aid dollars. These students may also be eligible for outside scholarships, Federal Direct loans, PLUS, and private loans. Institutional funds will not be awarded to these students to cover costs beyond full tuition and fees.
