In order to make up the shortfall you will need some additional aid from the college and/or government.

*Note: The tuition benefit is capped at the lessor of the actual tuition charged to you or $20,235.
Remember, some forms of aid such as Pell Grants are awarded in addition to your Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits so be sure to fill out your FASA forms.

Yellow Ribbon Program

It appears as though Cogswell College participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, but we could not determine if there are restrictions of this participation. 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 so check with the college.

Remember, only veterans who qualify for full Post-9/11 benefits are eligible to participate in a Yellow Ribbon program.

Cogswell College awarded a total of $42,534 in Yellow Ribbon benefits last year. This was split among 10 veterans for an average award of $4,253 ($8,507 after government matching).
