Villanova will fully fund the tuition and fees for up to 55 qualifying students for the 2020/2021 academic year. Breaking down that number (55), this is how the benefit will be applied here at Villanova. 40 undergrad students, 10 graduate students and 5 law school students will be eligible for funding.
Villanova's Yellow Ribbon Program funds will be awarded to qualifying students on a first-come, first-served basis. To be considered, qualifying students must:
- Be using Chapter 33, Post-9/11 VA Education benefits at the 100% eligibility level and be a full-time student. Full-time is 12 credits or more undergrad, 6 credits or more graduate, per term.
- Be accepted for enrollment to a degree program or be currently enrolled in a degree program at Villanova University.
- Submit an updated Certificate of Eligibility provided to you by the VA to Villanova University's School Certifying Official (SCO).
Recipients will be selected based upon the date the application is submitted and when all conditions are met.
Students who have been approved for Yellow Ribbon funding will continue to receive the benefit, provided the conditions above are still met. You will not be required to submit a Yellow Ribbon application each term. However, you will need to submit an Enrollment Verification form each term you plan to use your benefits. Students will be contacted by Villanova's Certifying Official (SCO) when they have been selected to receive Yellow Ribbon funds. Please submit your Yellow Ribbon application electronically utilizing the form here.
