Rasmussen College has elected to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to your GI Bill® entitlement.
Rasmussen College agrees to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to your GI Bill® entitlement. Rasmussen College voluntarily entered into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with VA and choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed. VA matches that amount and issues payments directly to the institution.
Only service members receiving Chapter 33 at 100% entitlement are eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program.
