Northeastern University is committed to making education more affordable for servicemembers and veterans, and we are proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program at the highest level possible. If you find that your tuition and fees exceed the maximum annual Post-9/11 GI Bill® payment, you can apply to the program to cover your additional expenses. Northeastern has invested more than $2 million to offer 100 graduate students at our Seattle campus the opportunity to participate in the program.
