Yellow Ribbon

As a military-friendly university, Rider is dedicated to ensuring you access to our quality education by bridging the financial gap between your benefits as a veteran and the cost of education. Through the Yellow Ribbon Program, veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces who have served their country for at least three years following 9/11 can earn their bachelor’s or master’s degree, or a professional certificate at Rider tuition-free.

Tuition Deferment for Service Members, Veterans, and their beneficiaries

Certified, eligible service members, veterans and their beneficiaries, enrolled full-time, may participate in a deferred tuition payment plan. The amount of tuition deferred may not exceed the monthly VA educational benefit and a carrying charge is levied for all deferrals. The Military Affairs Representatives in consultation with the Bursar determines the appropriate payment plan. Students desiring deferred payment plan must consult a Military Affairs Representative.

Students are encouraged to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid [FAFSA] online whether or not they currently receive military benefits. Please contact our Military Affairs Representatives about tuition benefits for eligible veterans through the Yellow Ribbon program.
