SXU participates in Yellow Ribbon Program

Program lets qualified veterans attend SXU tuition-free

Chicago (June 16, 2009) Saint Xavier University is proud to announce its participation in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, which allows qualified veterans to attend the University tuition-free starting in the fall 2009 semester.

The program, a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, allows private colleges and universities to collaborate with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to cover the difference between the GI Benefit and Saint Xavier�s tuition. 

�We are proud to offer this opportunity for our military men and women to pursue their educations as they have served our nation,� said Saint Xavier President Judith A. Dwyer, Ph.D.

The program also provides for other expenses, such as stipends for housing, books and supplies. 

Saint Xavier will provide scholarships during participants� entire academic career as long as students maintain satisfactory progress, conduct and attendance.
