Yellow Ribbon Program Participant

Yellow Ribbon picture

Since 2009, the Yellow Ribbon Program has supported hundreds of Mountaineers who have served their country. West Virginia University and Potomac State College remain committed to the Yellow Ribbon Program because we value what Veterans bring to campus. It opens the door to our world-class education and secures the dream of obtaining a degree. Those receiving 100% Post 9/11 GI Bill eligibility also receive additional funding to cover the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition and fees. For all eligible West Virginia University and Potomac State College undergraduate students, West Virginia University has agreed to waive up to 50% of this difference with a direct match from the Veterans Administration under the Yellow Ribbon Program. In 2014-15, West Virginia University continues to extend these benefits to eligible Graduate students in all Colleges and Schools at West Virginia University including:

Eberly College of Arts and Sciences
Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design
College of Business and Economics
School of Dentistry
Benjamin Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources
The College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences

New Colleges and Schools for 2014/2015 include:

College of Creative Arts
College of Education and Human Services
School of Nursing
