Explanation of Benefits

  • Geneva participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. The Yellow Ribbon Program allows for Geneva to contribute a specified dollar amount towards the student’s balance that is not covered by Chapter 33 benefits, and VA will match the contribution. This program is available only for veterans entitled to the maximum benefit rate (based on service requirements) or their designated transferees. For more information, please refer to this Yellow Ribbon Pamphlet.
