Step 2: Once you receive your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) you can review the Checklist for your Benefits by Chapter.

Because UD is a private institution, your actual tuition & fees costs may exceed what the Post 9/11 GI Bill will pay. For that reason, the University of Dayton is proud to be a Yellow Ribbon Program participant.
Degree-granting institutions participating in the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program agree to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to your GI Bill entitlement.
These are the Yellow Ribbon program scholarships for the 2017-2018 school year:
- 50 Undergraduate Students: Awards up to $10,000 each
- 20 Graduate Students: Awards up to $5,000 each
- 20 School of Law Students: Awards up to $4,000 each
