Yellow Ribbon Program

We’re a proud participant in the Post-9/11 GI Bill® Yellow Ribbon Program. As such, we offer qualified veterans tuition assistance of up to $7,500 per academic year through the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program. Anna Maria College’s financial commitment—combined with government allowances—enables eligible veterans to cover the full cost of tuition, fees, and books in any college degree program. This is in addition to the scholarship/grant funding that most on ground students receive that varies from $17,500 to $22,500 per student.


Veterans and Student Resources Services

Our Student Resource Center Program is a great resource for veterans starting to think about pursuing higher education. 


Under S2248 PL 115-407 Section 103, Anna Maria College will not impose a late fee, denial of access to facilities, or other penalty against a veteran or eligible dependent due to a late payment of tuition and/or fees from the VA up to the certified benefits amount. Any portion of the balance not covered by VA benefits is still expected to be settled by the due date.
