Yellow Ribbon Program
Yellow Ribbon Program: McMurry University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Students receiving Post 9/11 GI BILL education benefits at the 100% rate may qualify to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
Yellow Ribbon will cover the remaining tuition after the annual VA cap for tuition is reached. As of August 1, 2011, the federal government implemented an amendment to the Post 9/11 GI BILL of 2009, which stated that all tuition and fees are paid if the student attends a public university, but a cap is set annually for the highest amount that can be paid for tuition and fees to private universities. The Yellow Ribbon program ensures that students receiving benefits at the 100% rate under the Post 9/11 GI BILL will receive full tuition and fees paid while pursuing their education at McMurry University. McMurry University pays one half of the remainder of tuition and fees, and the VA will pay the other half of the remainder of the tuition and fees. If you have any questions please contact the VA Certifying Official at (325)793-3813 or email Karen Freeland.
Yellow Ribbon Exemptions: Active duty personnel receiving Post 9/11 GI BILL benefits and spouses of active duty personnel receiving transfer of eligibility benefits (TOE) are not eligible to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits. Recipients of the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship are not eligible to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits.
