At University of Northern Colorado we work with veterans to use their Yellow Ribbon benefits, the Post 9-11 GI Bill®, as well as university financial support, to cover many of the costs of studying at UNC, including the full cost of tuition for both resident and non-resident qualifying veteran students. In addition, Post 9-11 GI Bill® benefits help cover the cost of housing and provides a book stipend. The Yellow Ribbon program is a cost-share program with the Department of Veterans Affairs and universities that covers out-of-state tuition for Post 9-11 GI Bill® benefit users.
In order to participate in Yellow Ribbon, students must be eligible for Post 9-11 GI Bill® benefits at 100 percent, must be using the benefits, and must be enrolled as an undergraduate student.
If you would like to see how changing your residency status would affect your benefits, please contact the Bursar's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 970-351-4862 Option 1.
