Dominican boasts Yellow Ribbon Program

Dominican University of California has signed up to provide discounted tuition for qualifying military veterans and their dependents under the new Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits program. The program, known as the Yellow Ribbon Program, went into effect August 1.

Veterans in the program can enroll in Dominican’s traditional undergraduate program, adult education Pathways Program, or graduate program as long as they meet admission criteria. Dominican will provide funding for up to 10 students in the 2009-2010 academic year.

“By enacting the Yellow Ribbon Program, we hope to give back to individuals who have sacrificed much for the United States,” Dominican University of California Joseph R. Fink said. “We think this is a wonderful opportunity to honor people who have served in the military for our country.”

Established by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, the Yellow Ribbon Program provides supplemental education funding beyond the basic Chapter 33 benefits by matching contributions made by a participating university. Earlier this month, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the state of California agreed to language that had prevented California veterans from receiving tuition benefits.

Qualifying undergraduate students will receive an 80 percent tuition discount, 40 percent of which will be funded by Dominican and matched by 40 percent from the VA. The student will pay the remaining 20 percent, which could be covered through federal and state financial aid. Graduate students will receive a 50 percent tuition discount, with 25 percent funded by Dominican and 25 percent by the VA. Dominican’s 2009-2010 tuition is $33,540 for undergraduates, $14,380 for undergraduates enrolled fulltime (12 units) in the University’s evening/weekend Pathways program for adult learners, and from $550 to $845 per unit for graduate students.
