The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides tuition benefits, a housing allowance, and a book allowance for veterans who meet the eligibility requirements. In addition, Rollins College is a full participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program which means that all eligible veterans (and dependents) who are admitted into any of Rollins' programs will receive enough grant aid from the Veterans Administration and Rollins College to pay the entire cost of their tuition and fees. Eligible veterans will not need to take out loans or find other funding sources for a Rollins' education.
For specific requirements, see the letter from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs: http://www.gibill.va.gov/
In general, the Post-9/11 GI Bill is for individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate 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.
