University of the Potomac provides tuition assistance, GI Bill®, and credit transfers for Active Duty Military, families of service members, and Veterans.

Any veteran who has served at least 90 days of active duty after September 11, 2001, and received an honorable discharge is eligible to take advantage of the Post 9/11 GI Bill®. Veterans who served 30 days but were honorably discharged for a service-related disability also qualify for the new GI Bill® benefits.

Yellow Ribbon Program

As of August 1, 2010, University of the Potomac begins participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program. This program is a joint effort between the Veterans Administration and University of the Potomac to provide fulltime veterans who are eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill with an additional benefit to fund tuition amounts not covered by basic Post 9/11 funds.

For each semester that a veteran who is receiving Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits and who attends that semester as a full-time student, 50% of the tuition amounts not covered by basic Post 9/11 funds will be paid by the Veterans Administration and matched dollar-for-dollar by University of the Potomac, bringing tuition payments for eligible veterans to 100%.

Payments for these additional tuition funds are posted to student accounts at the end of each semester when a veteran’s full-time status for the semester has been verified.
