Veterans Financial Aid


GI Bill, Yellow Ribbon:

Beverly Hills Design Institute (BHDI) supports our veterans and military community financially – largely through our commitment to awarding an unlimited number of Yellow Ribbon scholarships with an unlimited amount of money each year to eligible students on the undergraduate level. Through Yellow Ribbon funding, undergraduate student veterans, who enter BHDI with remaining GI Bill eligibility, can graduate debt-free. The Yellow Ribbon program supplements the GI Bill at private institutions.

Please use the VA’s GI Bill Comparison Tool to see how Beverly Hills Design Institute’s Yellow Ribbon commitment compares to other schools. You can enter your level (undergraduate, graduate), your GI Bill percentage (Yellow Ribbon applies at the 100% level), and see what your net cost will be each year at BHDI.

Undergraduate Yellow Ribbon Funding

Only veterans entitled to the 100% Post 9/11 benefit rate (based on service requirements) or their designated transferees may receive this funding. Active duty service members and their spouses are not eligible for this program (child transferees of active duty service members may be eligible if the service member is qualified at the 100% rate).

Continued Eligibility for Yellow Ribbon Benefit Recipients

  • Remain in good academic standing with BHDI
  • All VA certified courses must be degree applicable
  • Remain eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits through the VA (you can check this through the VA’s eBenefits site)

Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33)

The Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) helps you pay for school or job training. If you’ve served on active duty after September 10, 2001, you may qualify for the Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33). Find out if you can get this education benefit.

Veteran Readiness and Employment (Chapter 31)

If you have a service-connected disability that limits your ability to work or prevents you from working, Veteran Readiness and Employment (formerly called Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment) can help. This program—also known as Chapter 31 or VR&E—helps you explore employment options and address education or training needs. In some cases, your family members may also qualify for certain benefits.
