Frequently Asked Questions

The Yellow Ribbon Program allows UC to partner with the VA to contribute funds to our veterans' unmet tuition and fee charges when their tuition and fees charges exceed the amount payable under Chapter 33. UC can contribute up to 50 percent of veterans' unmet costs; the Department of Veterans Affairs will match the amount.

The University of Cincinnati will accommodate up to a maximum of fifty-five (55) Yellow Ribbon students for an academic year. Students will be allotted Yellow Ribbon benefits on a first-come-first-served basis up to the established student-category maximums.

The maximum number of students per student-category and the maximum dollar amount provided by UC per category will be as follows:

  • Twenty-five (25) undergraduate students.  Each student will be awarded up to a maximum of $3,946 for each of Autumn and Spring terms (Summer term is not included) for a maximum of $7,892 per student for the academic year;
  • Fifteen (15) graduate students.  Each student will be awarded up to a maximum of $3,022.50 for each of Autumn and Spring terms (Summer term is not included) for a maximum of $6,045 per student for the academic year;
  • Five (5) College of Law students.  Each student will be awarded up to a maximum of $4,596 for each of Autumn and Spring terms, for a maximum of $9,192 per student for the academic year;
  • Five (5) Pharmacy College PharmD Program students.  Each student will be awarded up to a maximum of $3,018 for each of Autumn and Spring terms (Summer term is not included) for a maximum of $6,036 per student for the academic year; and
  • Five (5) College of Medicine MD Program Students. Each student will be awarded up to a maximum of $4,654.50 for each of Autumn and Spring terms (Summer term is not included) for a maximum of $9,309 per student for the academic year.

Once the maximum number of students per category has been reached, additional Yellow Ribbon applications for that category will be denied. If students participating in Yellow Ribbon do not enroll each Autumn and Spring terms, they will be removed from the Yellow Ribbon Program and have to reapply when they return to UC.

Students will be responsible for any tuition and fee charges that exceed the per-term and annual maximum amounts established above.

Student Veterans must review their eligibiltyfor Ohio residency classification under the "Ohio GI Promise" and other residency programs available at UC and take action as appropriate.
