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. Lynn University complies with the Executive Order 13607 Establishing Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Service Member, Veterans, Spouses, and other family members. New students who expect to receive veteran’s benefits must meet with the VA certifying officer to review the financial costs and academic plan prior to enrollment of their first year.
For the 2017-2018 academic year, Lynn University‘s commitment to the Yellow Ribbon program is capped at $13,000 for day undergraduate program, which means the Veterans Administration (VA) will also commit to $13,000. The Ch. 33 benefits will already cover $21,084, so in total, the VA benefits can pay up to $47,084. Any excess costs beyond $47,084 will be borne by the student.
