Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program Application

Please complete the Yellow Ribbon Program application with a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility from the VA. Veterans who will be using their own benefits (not benefits transferred from a parent) must also submit a copy of their DD214, Member 4.

Yellow Ribbon Application

In submitting the Yellow Ribbon application, you are indicating your intent to utilize your Post-9/11 GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon eligibility.  Cornell offers aid based on financial need. If you apply and qualify for need-based aid, you may not need to utilize Yellow Ribbon/VA/GI Bill® Benefits. Contact our office if you have questions about how to proceed.

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.
