Yellow Ribbon/GI Bill


Coker College is joining forces with the United States Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to provide a $5,000 scholarship to qualifying veterans under the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program).

In some cases, this will allow qualifying Post-9/11 veterans to attend Coker College for free.

The $5,000 scholarship program begins with the 2009-2010 academic year. The Yellow Ribbon Program is for veterans who have served 36 months of active duty. It is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.

The GI Bill is outlined by chapters and the specific chapter that you apply for will be listed on your Certificate of Eligibility (COE). A Summary of VA Education Benefits guide developed by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs can help in determining your benefit eligibility, and is located at the below link.

Benefits Guide

An active duty Army Reserve or National Guard student may be eligible for Tuition Assistance. The service member would discuss options with his or her military education liaison and apply for Tuition Assistance at the link below.
