Tusculum College offers free tuition for many veterans


Many veterans can get their Bachelor's or Master's Degree tuition-free at Tusculum College through the federal Yellow Ribbon program.

Veterans of all branches of the U.S. military who qualify for full entitlement of the Post 9/11 GI Bill are eligible. Children of vets who have had full Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits also qualify.

The program is an agreement between the school and the Veterans Administration that full tuition will be covered for those who served at least three years on active duty, or at least 30 days for someone released for service-connected disability since 9/11.
