Beginning this month, qualified U.S. veterans who currently attend or wish to attend the Georgia Institute of Technology can apply for the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, according to the Institute's Veterans Services office. At Tech, the Yellow Ribbon Program covers qualified in-state and out-of-state veterans' tuition and fees for undergraduate, professional and other graduate degrees. To be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program, veterans must qualify 100 percent for the Post 9/11 GI Bill, meaning they must have served at least 36 months of active duty since Sept. 10, 2001. Other provisions for disabled veterans also apply and can be found online at the Department of Veterans Affairs Web site. The Yellow Ribbon Program, part of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, allows degree-granting institutions in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Veterans Administration (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. Tech joins more than 1,100 colleges and universities that have signed up to take part in the initiative. Information on the Yellow Ribbon Program at Tech is available through Veterans Services in the Registrar's Office. For more information on the program, contact VA Coordinator Tammy Dennis at 404-894-4953 or tammy.dennis@registrar.gatech.edu.
