Yellow Ribbon University

Fordham's reputation as a veteran-friendly University dates back to the Civil War. Since then, our relationship with veterans and members of the military has been renewed every time Americans have taken up arms.

In the winter of 2008-09, Fordham was one of the first universities in the country to commit to full participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which removes any financial obstacles between eligible Post-9/11 service members and a Fordham education.

Just two years later, the Fordham veteran community has grown to 235, and we have been included in Military Times "Top 100" nationally. 

And now, even in the face of the new national cap on VA benefits, Fordham has reaffirmed and increased its Yellow Ribbon commitment to cover ALL tuition and fees for Post-911 veterans (or dependents).  That guarantee applies to any of our three campuses, and to any of the 10 schools to which you are admitted.
