Yellow Ribbon Program
July 31, 2012

Aloha Veterans and Dependents,
Kapi’olani Community College is now participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) for the 2012-2013 academic year. If you are qualified for YRP, please read and submit attached YRP application at our office in Ilima 107. If you have already submitted your YRP to our office please disregard this email.

What is Yellow Ribbon Program?
The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed either the annual maximum cap for private institutions or the resident tuition and fees for public institutions. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. To learn more about the Yellow Ribbon Program, please click here.

Feel free to call us if you have any questions at 734-9583.
