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 $13,000, which means the Veterans Administration (VA) will also commit to $13,000. The Ch. 33 benefits will already cover $23,671, so in total the VA benefits can pay is up to $49,671. Any excess costs beyond $49,671 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 degree. 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).
