Yellow Ribbon Program
The Yellow Ribbon Program can help you pay for higher out-of-state, private school, or graduate school tuition that the Post-9/11 GI Bill doesn’t cover. Find out if you're eligible by visiting www.va.gov/education/about-gi-bill-benefits/post-9-11/yellow-ribbon-program.
- Palmer has made a commitment to participate in the program at the highest possible discount to students.
- First come, first serve.
As a provision of the bill, the Yellow Ribbon Program allows U.S. degree-granting institutions to enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. Each participating institution can contribute up to 50 percent of those expenses and the VA will match the same amount as the institution.
Current or prospective Palmer students interested in applying to the Yellow Ribbon Program should contact:
- Main Campus: Registrar’s Office at 563-884-5654 or firstname.lastname@example.org
- West Campus: Student Services at 408-944-6122 or email@example.com
- Florida Campus: Registrar’s Office at 386-763-2667 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Other ways we support veterans
The Yellow Ribbon Program is one of several ways Palmer College supports U.S. veterans and military personnel. Active-duty military personnel, qualified veterans and their families are given free chiropractic care at Palmer clinics.
Palmer also provides its senior-level interns an opportunity to work with staff chiropractors in Department of Defense or Veterans Affairs hospitals.
