April 8, 2011 — Texas Chiropractic College recently announced the school’s participation in the Veterans’ Administration’s Yellow Ribbon Program, which supports the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill that provides financial support for education to individuals who have served in the United States Armed Services on or after Sept. 11, 2001.
Effective Aug. 1, 2011, the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill will pay up $17,500 per academic year at private schools like TCC. As a partner in the Yellow Ribbon Program, TCC will provide funding for the remaining balance that will be matched by the VA, thus ensuring that U.S. veterans will not have to pay for their education at the College.
“By joining the Yellow Ribbon Program, we are affirming our commitment to assist our veterans as they conclude their services to our country,” said Dr. Fred Zuker, TCC Dean of Enrollment Management and an Army veteran. “It is of vital importance that we provide educational opportunities to the many men and women who have honorably served and protected us.”
