» Financial Benefits and Resources for Veterans

Veterans and family members with 100% GI Bill® eligibility, using the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, will typically receive full tuition coverage through a combination of VA benefits, Yellow Ribbon contributions, and financial aid.

Please see below for more information on how these benefits can make education at Chapman University an affordable option. If you have any questions, please contact the Veterans Resource Center.



Applying for Post-9/11 GI Bill ® Benefits

You can apply for your GI Bill® benefits on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website. Veterans with less than 100% GI Bill® eligibility should contact the Veterans Resource Center to ensure they receive the maximum benefits allowable.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill® covers all in-state tuition and fees at public-degree granting schools. To accommodate the additional tuition expense of a private university, the Yellow Ribbon Program was created (see below).


Chapman’s Yellow Ribbon Program

Through the Yellow Ribbon Program, Chapman University will financially contribute towards your tuition and fees each academic year (and the Veterans Administration will contribute matching funds). There is no contribution limit on Chapman’s part, which means your tuition and fees could be fully covered.

Chapman University’s participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program is voluntary. Chapman may choose not to participate or change the contribution amount offered in future years.
