United States Information

The GI Bill

Tuition Costs – If you have the post 9/11 GI bill, the VA can pay the resident tuition fee at a public school and other eligible costs such as housing costs and a book allowance. If attending a private or foreign school tuition can be covered up to $25,000 per year. Tuition costs are paid directly to the MBA program by the Veterans Association at the beginning of the year

Housing Allowance – The housing allowance is calculated based on the average housing costs of the area where you attend your MBA program and usually ranges from $1800 – $2,700 per month. To be eligible for this full funding you must be taking at least 1 on campus class while the other classes may be taken online. If you are taking 100% online classes, then this stipend will be reduced to just under $900 per month.

Book Stipend – Finally, under the GI Bill, you may be eligible to receive a book stipend which is usually $1000 per year.

Yellow Ribbon Program:

Some schools participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program whereby they have an agreement with the VA to waive a percentage of their program cost. Within this program, schools also decide how many students will be accepted each year, to which degree programs as well as the maximum amount of contribution per student. The VA then pledges to pay an equal amount. Ask your MBA program if their school participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program as this can provide you with additional financial assistance.
