Military Family Unity CollegeYellow Ribbon Program

Part of Unity College’s commitment to our veteran students is our participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Our financial contributions to the Yellow Ribbon Program enable eligible veterans to receive additional funds for their education. The Yellow Ribbon Program is a voluntary agreement between Unity College and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. Veterans who qualify for the maximum benefit rate under Chapter 33 can have additional funds contributed to their unmet tuition and fee charges when their tuition and fee charges exceed the amount payable under Chapter 33. The Veterans Affairs Department (VA) will match the amount that Unity contributes.
