OKLAHOMA CITY -- Colleges across the state expecting to see more veterans in school this fall, thanks to the new, post 9-11 GI Bill.

The "Yellow Ribbon" program provides a veteran with tuition and fees equivalent to the most expensive public undergrad school in the state.

Twenty-five schools have joined the program, most of them private institutions.

Oklahoma State University and Cameron University are the only two public schools to join so far.
