As of August 2014, the Post 9/11 GI Bill covers up to $20,235.02 annually in costs for qualifying veterans and/or their transferees attending a private university or college. For veterans and/or their transferees that qualify for the Adult Degree Completion Program at Dominican, that means full-time (12 units or more) fall and spring enrollment is possible without exceeding the annual maximum. Adult Degree Completion students can also elect for part-time (6 units), year-round (fall, spring and summer) enrollment without exceeding Post 9/11 GI Bill education benefits.
Post 9/11 GI Bill eligible veterans and/or transferees may also qualify for additional tuition assistance through the Yellow Ribbon program. Yellow Ribbon funds afford Adult Degree Completion students the opportunity to enroll full-time and attend year-round (fall, spring and summer). As a Yellow Ribbon participating institution, Dominican will cover up to 50% of remaining tuition (after GI Bill is deducted) with a 50% match from Veterans Administration (VA).

Students will not be considered for Yellow Ribbon benefits until all three steps have been completed.
Dominican is committed to meeting the needs of veterans.
