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 East Carolina 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.
