San Diego, Calif. - The Art Institute of California – San Diego has
been approved to participate in the Yellow Ribbon program, a provision
of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. As a
participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program, The Art Institute of
California – San Diego will voluntarily be able to provide tuition
assistance to veterans to help offset all or some of their education
The Yellow Ribbon Program allows institutions of higher learning the ability to assist with tuition
costs exceeding the GI Bill's current maximum benefit rate, based on the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate in the applicable state. The Art Institute of California – San Diego will contribute an additional amount to eligible veterans to offset those expenses and The U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs will match the same amount as the school.
The program provides funding to veterans who have served at least 36 months of active duty following September 10, 2001, veterans who were honorably discharged from active duty for a service related disability and who served 30 continuous days following September 10, 2001, and dependents eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post- 9/11 GI Bill based on a veteran's service under one of the first two criteria.
Eligible veterans may contact The Art Institute of California – San Diego's Student Financial Services department at 858.598.1321 to learn more The Art Institute of California – San Diego's Yellow Ribbon Program participation.
