Fayetteville State University’s Master of Business Administration Program Receives Yellow Ribbon Status

Fayetteville State University’s (FSU) Master of Business Administration (MBA) Program in the College of Business and Economics has been approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to participate in the Yellow Ribbon G.I. Bill Education Enhancement Program, known as the Yellow Ribbon Program. The agreement permits FSU and the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide matching funds to cover all or a portion of the outstanding amount of established charges not covered under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. FSU will begin participating in the program August 1, 2017 through July 31, 2018.

“The College of Business and Economics is proud and honored to be a Yellow Ribbon participant. We are committed to supporting our nation’s veterans and helping them achieve their educational goals by substantially reducing the costs of higher education.” Said Dr. Pamela Jackson, Dean of the College of Business and Economics.

The Yellow Ribbon Program was established by the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (such as colleges, universities, and other degree-granting schools) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the tuition and fee amounts payable under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The institution can contribute a specified dollar amount of those expenses, and VA will match the contribution, not to exceed 50% of the difference. To receive the Yellow Ribbon Program benefits you must be enrolled in an approved program offered by an institution of higher learning that participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Fayetteville State University is a constituent institution of The University of North Carolina and the second-oldest public institution of higher education in the state. FSU offers degrees at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels. With more than 6,200 students, Fayetteville State University is among the most diverse institutions in the nation.
