Adelphi University Participating & Expanding Its Education Opportunities For Veterans

Adelphi University is participating and expanding its education opportunities for veterans through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program), a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 that allows private universities to offer similar low to no-cost tuition benefits that public universities can offer under the bill. Adelphi has agreed to match the Veterans Administration's contribution of 50 percent of tuition costs, so that a qualified veteran would pay little to no tuition if they chose to attend Adelphi. University College is coordinating Adelphi's Yellow Ribbon Program participation. Adelphi is committed to offering academic and support programs, valuable resources, and transitional services designed to meet the unique needs of currently enlisted military personnel and military veterans. Information about the new program and VA's other educational benefits can be obtained through http://www.gibill.va.gov/> or by calling 1-888-GIBILL1 (1-888-442-4551).
