Veterans May Be Eligible to Attend Trinity Tuition-Free

Jul 26, 2017

Palos Heights, Ill.: Trinity Christian College is ensuring that veterans who are eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill can attend the College tuition-free, while also receiving housing and book stipends from the Veteran’s Administration.

The Post 9/11 GI Bill’s maximum annual payment amount is typically less than the annual cost of full-time tuition and fees at private four-year colleges, so veterans often have to self-fund some of their college costs. As a way to support students who have served our country, Trinity has committed to the Yellow Ribbon Program, which fully funds a veteran’s tuition and fees.

“At Trinity Christian College, we honor the commitment and sacrifice of the men and women who have selflessly enlisted in the military,” said Ryan Zantingh, Director of Financial Aid. “We are pleased to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, and we look forward to working with veterans who are considering pursuing or completing their degrees here.”

Under the Yellow Ribbon Program, Trinity waives half of the unmet cost of tuition and fees after a veteran’s annual maximum payment has been used. The VA funds the other half of the remaining tuition and fees. This partnership allows a veteran who is 100% eligible under the Post 9/11 GI Bill to attend Trinity tuition-free.

Trinity has annually been recognized as a military-friendly school by Victory Media, a veteran-owned business that assesses colleges’ ability to serve veterans.
