As a G.I. Bill and Yellow Ribbon college, we at Bryan University are strongly committed to our military students. We want to make a quality education as accessible as possible through our schools in Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri. To help you reach your career goals, Bryan University offers you a number of options, and we invite you to use our site as a resource to learn more about the assistance programs that may help change your life! As a G.I. Bill and Yellow Ribbon college, we honor Air Force benefits, Army benefits, Coast Guard benefits, Marine Corps benefits, Navy benefits as well as military spouse benefits.
