The Post 9/11 GI Bill® provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of accumulated service on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill®.
Students must submit a Certificate of Eligibility to W&J in order to receive the VA payments towards their costs. W&J institutional funding awarded previously may be reduced if the amount of money credited to a student’s account from all sources exceeds the total charges (tuition, room, board and some fees) billed by the College. Families are encouraged to file a FAFSA to determine eligibility for federal and state financial aid. Post 9/11 education benefits can be accessed online through www.gibill.va.gov. Students must click on "eBenefits" and establish a premium account (if they have not already done so) and click on Education. All eligibility information will be listed here.

Yellow Ribbon Program
Through the Yellow Ribbon program, W&J will match 50% of the gap remaining between our tuition and the VA designated cap for private schools. We will provide up to a $10,000 W&J grant, which will be matched by the VA. Students must have 100% eligibility in the post 9/11 GI Bill program in order to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits. The Yellow Ribbon Program is only available during the Fall and Spring semesters.
