Widener Law Commonwealth has elected to expand their participation and, beginning with the 2015-2016 academic year, will fund all eligible JD students with an unlimited contribution per student, not to exceed the cost of tuition.
The following requirements are for individuals interested in applying for the Yellow Ribbon Program at Widener Law Commonwealth:
There is no minimum number of credit hours required for participation, and awards continue in subsequent years in which the student maintains satisfactory progress, conduct, and attendance.
How does it work?
For example, a regular division JD student (15 credit hours/semester) with combined support from the GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program for the 2016-2017 academic year is as follows:
|Widener Law Commonwealth Tuition & Mandatory Fees||$43,258|
Less: Post-9/11 GI Bill
*Mandatory cap for private institutions 8/1/16 - 7/31/17*
|Less: Widener Law Commonwealth Yellow Ribbon Program Grant||($10,643.77)|
|Less: VA Yellow Ribbon Program Match||($10,643.77)|
|Remaining Student Obligation||-0-|
The Yellow Ribbon Program covers tuition and mandatory fees and does not include room and board or books and supplies, which are provided for separately under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
