New York Film Academy is a Yellow Ribbon School

The New York Film Academy is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which is a provision of the Post-9/11 GI Bill®. The Yellow Ribbon Program enables degree-granting institutions to partially or fully fund tuition and fees that exceed the national tuition cap.

As a yellow ribbon school, NYFA has chosen to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program in order to make additional funds available to veteran students who qualify. While the Post-9/11 GI Bill may cover the tuition and fees of a public school, the Yellow Ribbon program can help those eligible by providing additional funds to help cover unmet tuition costs at the New York Film Academy.

Your actual tuition and fees costs may exceed these amounts if you are attending a private school or are attending a public school as a nonresident student.

NYFA's campuses in South Beach and Los Angeles are both yellow ribbon schools as they offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

Benefits and Eligibility

Only veterans (or dependents under Transfer of Entitlement) at the 100% benefit level qualify. Active duty members and spouses thereof are not eligible for this program.

In order to be eligible to receive benefits from the Yellow Ribbon Program, you must meet the following criteria:
  • You need to be eligible for the maximum benefit rate under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
  • You cannot be on active duty or be a spouse using transferred entitlement.
  • You have served a total of 36 months of active duty following September 10, 2001 or you were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-related disability in addition to serving 30 continuous days following September 10, 2001.
  • You are a dependent eligible for 100% Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.
