Yellow Ribbon Program Participant But With Limitations
If you have tuition and fees charges that are not covered by your Post-9/11 benefits, you may be able to get additional assistance in the form of a Yellow Ribbon Award. While Clemson University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, it places some limitations on the awards it grants, so your participation in this program is not guaranteed.
Clemson University awarded a total of $71,807 in Yellow Ribbon benefits last year. This was split among 24 veterans for an average award of $2,992 ($5,984 after government matching).
The following table may show you how likely you are to have outstanding tuition costs covered by the Yellow Ribbon Program at Clemson University. Remember, contributions from the college will be matched by the VA.
|Degree Level||Division or School||Max Number of Students||Max Contribution (after matching)||Tuition After Max Contribution|
