Post-9/11 GI Bill® Information
Important Notice (Online Students)
Veterans: Private Pilot Courses (AVIA 220 & AVIA 225) are not eligible to be covered by Post-9/11 GI Bill®.
- Students are able to cover the cost of Private Pilot Courses using other means such as Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, Payment Plans, Vocational Rehab, Private Scholarships, and others.
Liberty University is a proud participant in the Department of Veterans Affairs Yellow Ribbon Program. Through this partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs, students with 100% eligibility under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® can receive additional funding from Liberty University and the Department of Veterans Affairs to cover any tuition and fees exceeding the Post-9/11 annual limit. For many students, this scholarship allows 100% of all tuition and fees to be covered with no out-of-pocket expense.
Liberty University will contribute up to $7,500 in Yellow Ribbon per year for online SOA students. The Department of Veterans Affairs will match the amount awarded by Liberty University, for a combined scholarship that covers up to 100% of the student’s remaining tuition and fees. When combined with the VA’s portion, the total Yellow Ribbon amount available is $15,000 for online SOA students, over and above the Post-9/11 GI Bill® annual cap.
Liberty University has partnered with the Veterans Affairs (VA) Administration to offer the Yellow Ribbon Program to students with 100% eligibility under the Post-9/11 GI Bill®. All students with 100% eligibility are eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program, except for Active Duty students and their spouses, per the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The Veterans Administration Post-9/11 GI Bill® program entitles veterans, their spouses, or their dependent children the opportunity to be awarded up to 100 percent of their educational expenses, including a housing stipend.
