I am not a Wisconsin Resident - can I use the Yellow Ribbon Program?
If you are being assessed non-resident tuition and qualify for the Post 9/11 GI Bill® at 100% you may be able to use the Yellow Ribbon Program to cover the additional tuition. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to use the Yellow Ribbon Program.
What if I am not awarded 100% Post 9/11 GI Bill®?
If the Post 9/11 GI Bill® only covers a percentage of your tuition and fees you may qualify for the Wisconsin GI Bill® to pay the remaining balance.
