SNHU is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon program. There is no student enrollment cap for those participating in this program. Please visit the VA website for further information on the Yellow Ribbon program.
Applicants who are interested in discovering what benefits they are allowed through the Post-9/11 GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon program please follow the steps below:
Please read your Certificate of Eligibility carefully to know what educational benefits you are entitled to receive.
Veterans who have served after 9/11 can opt to use the current MGIB, but cannot change once they've started. Those that have used some, but not all, of their MGIB-AD Active Duty entitlement may opt to use the Post-9/11 GIB for the remaining months of entitlement.
Those that have not, fall under the previous Montgomery GI Bill program.

For some (depending on existing state benefits, scholarships, fellowship, and other tuition opportunities) it might be beneficial to stay with the MGIB.
GI BILL Benefit Levels
The benefit level is based on the individual's length of qualifying service:
Monthly housing allowance and the books and supplies stipend are reduced in the same manner as the tuition benefits.
The following types of active duty time do not qualify toward the service eligibility requirements:
Veterans who study half-time or less, or are enrolled in a distance education program are eligible for only the tuition benefits.
The Department of Veterans Affairs requires strict compliance with several regulations, including maintaining satisfactory academic progress and notification of any changes in status such as withdrawal from a course. It is your responsibility to be aware of all VA regulations that affect your educational program.
Reserve Service Members
May still use MGIB-SR
There are state programs also available that offer more options for Reservists and National Guardsman. These vary by state.
