Notre Dame College is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, offering education benefits to eligible veterans nationwide who pursue degrees online or on-site at the College.

The College is one of few private institutions providing unlimited coverage of tuition and fees for those who have served 36 months on active duty with a branch of the U.S. military. Benefits also are available to Purple Heart recipients, those with a service-connected disability, children of veterans using transferred benefits and transferee spouses who meet eligibility requirements.

The Yellow Ribbon Program helps veterans cover education costs not traditionally covered through the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Several institutions cap financial assistance available, but Notre Dame does not restrict the amount provided to veterans and their eligible children and spouses.

Notre Dame offers Yellow Ribbon benefits to veterans and authorized family members pursuing associate’s, bachelors’ or master’s degree and to those who are residents of Ohio as well as nonresidents. The College offers more than 30 majors in arts and humanities, business, education, nursing and science and mathematics.

Veterans also may receive transfer credit for their personal and professional experience at Notre Dame.

The College provides veterans and their spouses with personalized admission, enrollment, financial aid and advising services through Notre Dame’s Finn Center for Adult, Graduate and Professional Programs at no additional cost. They and their family members also can access the College’s Academic Support Center for Students with Learning Differences for a fee.

The Yellow Ribbon Program is one of several educational and career advantages Notre Dame offers to military service members and law enforcement professionals.

The College partners with the National Guard to provide transfer credits and a tuition discount to eligible service members who will pursue a master’s degree in national security and intelligence studies at the College through the National Guard Bureau Homeland Security Institute.

In addition, Notre Dame is introducing “Badge-to-Grad” program that grants Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy officers up to 30 transfer credits toward a bachelor’s degree for their professional training and experience beginning in fall 2019.

To learn more about these and other programs adult and traditional students can email Notre Dame at or visit the transfer student webpage.
