- The Post-9/11 GI Bill: If the program is at a public IHL, we pay the actual costs for public in-state tuition and fees. If the program is at a private or foreign IHL, we pay the lesser of the national maximum or the actual costs for in-state tuition and fees. We also pay for some of the cost of housing and books.
- All other GI Bill programs: We pay a monthly rate that depends on which GI Bill program you qualify for.
