The Yellow Ribbon Program is designed for qualifying veterans and dependents who wish to attend a degree-granting, private college or university. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) matches dollar-for-dollar the contributions a participating institution (i.e. Newman) makes toward your costs (tuition, mandatory fees, and in some cases other costs) which are above those of the most expensive public institution in the state where you live. Therefore, qualified college students can attend Newman for little to no cost. Read more to see if you qualify.


Service members must have been on active duty on or after Sept. 10, 2001.

Tuition and Financial Aid:
