Yellow Ribbon Request Form

The Yellow Ribbon program assists with out-of-state tuition at the University of Idaho. This form is for initial application and acceptance into the program.

Eligibility Guidelines

To be eligible for the program, students must:

  • Be approved for VA Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits at 100 percent
  • Be admitted to the University of Idaho
  • Be enrolled in classes full-time — 12 credits for undergraduates, 10 credits for Law School students and nine credits for graduate students — for the upcoming semester.
  • NOT be on Active Duty at any time during the semester for which you’re applying for the program. Students also are not eligible if they are on Terminal Leave, even if that leave is for a single day during the term.

Required Documents

  • PDF copy of your GI Bill Certificate of Eligibility
  • Electronic copy (screenshot, scanned printout, etc.) of your UI class schedule. Please save as PDF or JPEG.

To find your class schedule online, log in to VandalWeb, click Student Information/Registration Menu, click Registration Menu and click Schedule by Day and Time. A drop-down menu will ask you to Select a Term. Find the applicable term and click submit.
