Antioch University Los Angeles proudly welcomes student veterans as vital members of our community. We will help you make the most of the educational benefits you have earned while serving your country through an impactful, experiential learning experience that will benefit you personally and professionally.
AULA participates in the Post-9/11 GI Education Enhancement Program, also known as the Yellow Ribbon Program. The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher education to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund tuition expenses for eligible veterans. The agreement allows schools to contribute up to 50% of tuition expenses, which the VA will match. Details and eligibility guidelines for Post-9/11 Yellow Ribbon benefits can be found at www.gibill.va.gov.
To qualify for veteran admission, students must meet the following requirements:
- Qualify for VA education benefits administered through the Veterans’ Administration.
