How to Apply

All students applying for the Yellow Ribbon Program for the first time are asked to submit the Yellow Ribbon Application along with their Certificate of Eligibility, which is provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Returning students do not need to complete an application each year.

To be eligible, veterans must have served at least three years of active duty beginning on or after September 10, 2001. Only individuals entitled to the maximum benefit rate, based on service requirements, may receive this funding. Veterans from any state are eligible to attend Northeastern and receive Yellow Ribbon funding.
