The Post-9/11 GI Bill is an education benefit program for veterans who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001. The Post-9/11 GI Bill is considered the most comprehensive education benefit package since the original GI Bill was signed into law in 1944.
Colorado Christian University is pleased to be a participating University, and offer significant benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program. Specific information regarding Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, qualifications, and more can be found on the official VA website.
The Yellow Ribbon program is a benefit in which universities may agree to fund any tuition and fee costs that exceed the private school yearly maximum allowed by the VA of $21,084.89 for the 2015-16 academic year. The VA will match each additional dollar the university contributes, up to 50% of the difference between the student's tuition and fee benefit and the total cost of tuition and fees. This benefit allows the returning Armed Forces veterans the opportunity to complete their higher education in the college or university of their choice.
