For benefit certification purposes, any student receiving VA benefits must submit to the Office of Student Financial Services a copy of their DD 214, and Certificate of Eligibility. Student must report enrollment status changes to the Office of Student Financial Services and to their case manager. Students must be aware they may be liable to repay the VA for course load reductions unless they can establish acceptable mitigating circumstances causing the reduction. SFS will evaluate each Veteran/Veteran dependent’s credits each semester and report them to the Veterans Administration. If a veteran/veteran dependent withdraws, it will count toward his/her benefits eligibility. If a veteran/veteran dependent drops a course, they will not receive payment. SFS will monitor all VA students’ academic records. Please see the VA Web site for further information on policies and procedures. GI Bill ® is a registered trademark of the U. S.

Yellow Ribbon Program

Lynn University is a participant of the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program), which is a provision of the Post – 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The institution is in agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50 percent of those expenses, and VA will match the same amount as the institution. For the 2018-2019 academic year, Lynn University ‘s commitment to the Yellow Ribbon program is capped at $6,000 for masters programs and at $5,000 for doctorate programs, which means the veteran benefit of $23,671 and yellow ribbon will cover all of the student’s tuition, if they are enrolled in 6 credits hours per term. Any excess cost will be borne by the student.

Credit for Previous Training

Students who are eligible to receive educational benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs with previous post-secondary training/experience must request that official transcript(s) be sent to Lynn University. All transcripts must be received by the end of the first term or the student’s educational benefits will be terminated until all transcript(s) are received. Should credits be accepted, the student’s training time and total tuition costs will be reduced proportionately. The VA and the student will receive a written notice of allowed credits. This reduction refers to total costs involved in obtaining the degrees. Costs are reduced when credits from another institution are applied toward a Lynn University degree. This does not imply a credit reduction allowance for veterans or eligible dependents. GI Bill ® is a registered trademark of the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
