Program Details:

The Yellow Ribbon program at CU-Boulder is in place to assist non-resident students that are currently using the Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill to pay their tuition bill. Qualified applicants may receive up to $10,000, awarded up to $5,000 per semester. If students are receiving scholarships that contribute to the out-of-state portion of their tuition bill, it may lower the total Yellow Ribbon award amount.

A new Yellow Ribbon Application is required once an academic year. If you submitted a Yellow Ribbon Application in Fall, you do not need to complete another application with your Spring Request for Enrollment. Yellow Ribbon Applications must be submitted along with a Request for Enrollment.

  • All students must possess a Certificate of Eligibility for the Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill at the 100% level.
  • Applicants must not be eligible for in-state tuition.
  • Student must not be using transferred benefits from a spouse that is currently on Active Duty.
