Regent University-based scholarships, discounts and awards cannot be combined. If eligible for more than one award, Regent will award the highest scholarship amount. (Exceptions include the Church Match Grant, Regent Success Award, Seize Your Dreams Scholarship, and registration incentive discounts.)
University policy restricts institutional financial aid (scholarships/grants) from paying more than 100% of tuition when combined with certain non-Regent awards. When your VA Benefits cover 100% of your tuition costs, there are certain situations in which your VA Benefits will take precedence over any institutional scholarships or grants for which you might otherwise qualify. Examples of this include:
- Yellow Ribbon eligible students
- Undergraduate students who are 100% Post-9/11 GI Bill® eligible
Should your status for 100% eligibility change, or you reach your annual tuition cap, you would then be able to utilize your institutional scholarship or grant.
Regent University has partnered with the Veterans Affairs (VA) Administration to offer the Yellow Ribbon Program Scholarship to students with 100% eligibility under the Post-9/11 GI Bill®.
- The Yellow Ribbon Program at Regent University will cover 100% of tuition and fees over the Post-9/11 GI Bill® yearly tuition cap (50% funded by Regent University and 50% funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs.)
- All students with 100% Post 9/11 GI Bill® eligibility are eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Scholarship, except for Active Duty students and their spouses, per the Department of Veterans Affairs.
- The cap on Yellow Ribbon funds is currently unlimited for all programs.
- Because the Yellow Ribbon award is a form of Regent University institutional aid, it cannot be combined with any other Regent University scholarships or discounts.
