Post-9/11 GI Bill® + Yellow Ribbon

PLNU accepts VA educational benefits, including the Post-9/11 GI Bill®.

PLNU also participates as a Yellow Ribbon School, school, which means in most cases you can pursue a private education without having to pay out of pocket, not even for fees or books.

Because you’re a person who’s provided military service to our country, we’ll also waive your application fee.
