Seattle University currently participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. This is a program that allows students who are eligible for 100% Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 GI Bill®) benefits and not on active duty to gain additional funding for their tuition and fees. For the 2021-2022 academic year there are 120 spots for undergraduate students, 50 spots for graduate students (including 10 spots reserved for students in either the Masters of Teaching, Leadership Executive MBA, or Doctoral of Nursing programs.)
If you are eligible for Yellow Ribbon and are an institutional aid recipient, be aware you can only receive funding from one program at a time. You are only able to receive either Yellow Ribbon or institutional aid (ex. Merit scholarships, SU Grants) because Yellow Ribbon and institutional aid come from the same institutional source. We will always choose the option that is most financially beneficial for the student. For example, if you were to receive more in other institutional aid than Yellow Ribbon would offer we would award you institutional aid. In this case, you would remain on the Yellow Ribbon ‘waitlist’; in case the other option becomes more beneficial.
The Yellow Ribbon lists are separately maintained on a first-come, first-served basis for undergraduate, graduate, and MIT/LEMBA/DNP students. Once all of the spots fill up, a waiting list is started and monitored each quarter. If you are on the waiting list and still interested/able to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits when a spot opens, you will be notified (via an updated award letter) with the changes to your financial aid.
In order to get on the list we (the school certifying officials) need three things:
Once all three parts are in place you will be able to start using Yellow Ribbon at Seattle University. You can send all materials and questions about this process to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To have a better understanding about how your money will be applied, please see the outline of a sample bill below:
|2021-2022 Academic Year Costs||Fall Quarter||Winter Quarter||Spring Quarter|
|Undergraduate Tuition (flat rate for 12-20 credits)||$16,170.00||$16,170.00||$16,170.00|
|Technology Fee (full-time)||$175.00||$175.00||$175.00|
|Recreation Fee (full-time)||$100.00||$100.00||$100.00|
|2021-2022 Financial Aid||Fall Quarter||Winter Quarter||Spring Quarter|
|Post-9/11 GI Bill® Chapter 33 (cap $26,042.81)||$16,595.00||$9,447.81||$0.00|
|Federal Yellow Ribbon ($14,000)||$0.00||$3,498.59||$8,222.50|
|SU Yellow Ribbon ($14,000 matching)||$0.00||$3,498.60||$8,222.50|
|Balance Due (Costs minus Aid)||$0.00||$0.00||$0.00|
Because tuition and fees (as shown above) are less than the full amount of the combined Ch. 33 Tuition and Fee Cap plus Yellow Ribbon, this leaves students with $4,557.81 that could be used to help pay for other costs such as lab fees or summer classes. Please see Student Financial Services (HILB 220) for more information.
You cannot receive both Institutional aid and Yellow Ribbon funds. You will receive the funding that is to your benefit.
Post 9/11 GI Bill pays up to the cap before any Yellow Ribbon funds apply.
