VA Benefits - Chapter 33: How does residency affect my Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits?

Responses:

If you are 100 percent eligible with your GI Bill and you have in-state residency.

  • The full cost of in-state tuition will be paid by the GI Bill.
  • You do not need to apply for the Yellow Ribbon Program, which covers out-of-state tuition costs.

 If you are 100 percent eligible with your GI Bill and you have out-of-state residency.

  • The full cost of in-state tuition will be paid by the GI Bill.
  • You are eligible to participate in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program to cover the out of state portion.

If you are less than 100 percent eligible with your GI Bill and you have out-of-state residency.

  • A portion of the cost of in-state tuition will be paid by the GI Bill. You will be responsible for the un-paid portion of your bill.
  • You will not be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program, and you will be responsible for the difference between the in-state and out-of-state tuition rates.
