Yellow Ribbon ProgramThe College of Saint Rose is proud to be a Yellow Ribbon School. By participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program, the College has entered into a partnership with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to partially or fully fund tuition and fee expenses outlined in the Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33). Under the Post 9/11 GI Bill, a veteran or family member of a veteran who is 100 percent eligible can attend Saint Rose tuition- and fee-free, as well as get a housing and book allowance.

Unlike many institutions, Saint Rose has no cap on our Yellow Ribbon Program, making up for costs not covered by the Post 9/11 GI Bill.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
