How does it work?
The Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Improvements Act of 2010:
This program caps payment at $21,084 for a 12 month period (8/1/xx – 7/31/xx) for private education. In addition, the Post-9/11 Act provides a monthly stipend up to $3,125 and a $1,000 annual book allowance.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill offers financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of collective service on or after Sept. 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. Those service members also must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the funding. If you have less than 36 months of service, all benefits are prorated based upon your length of service.
Yellow Ribbon Program:
At Life West, tuition for a 12 month period would exceed the private education cap of $17,500. Therefore, we recommend that eligible veterans participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
We are approved for this specialized program which allows the VA and educational institutions to enter into agreements to help cover the cost of tuition above the cap for private colleges. The plan covers all undergraduate and graduate tuition not already provided for by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.
This program is available to veterans (or designated transferee) who have served an aggregate of 36 months of active duty service or who were released for a service connected disability.
