How Much Of My Daughter’s Tuition Would Be Paid By the Post 9/11 GI Bill?

Author Ron Kness is no longer in the service.

Q: Hello, Ron. I am Navy Master Chief Petty officer and I have transferred my Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits to my daughter, who wishes to attend the University of New Hampshire this fall as a full-time student. My question is: If she applies her GI Bill benefit for the full tuition at UNH, will it cover all of it or only part of it? Thank you for your assistance on this complicated matter.

A: How the Post 9/11 GI Bill works is it would pay her tuition in full up to the resident undergraduate level at UNH. So if she is a resident of New Hampshire, her tuition would be paid in full. However if she is not, and has to pay non-resident rates, she would most likely be left with an unpaid difference. In that case, the Yellow Ribbon Program (YR) would kick in and help pay the difference.

When the school set up their YR agreement, they would have stipulated what percentage they would pay; they could pay up to 50%. The VA agrees to pay an equal amount. So in theory, her difference could be paid in full. However, if her school agreed to a lesser percentage, then she would have a small difference left after her school and the VA each paid their shares.

Regardless if she is a resident or non-resident, she would also get the Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) and book stipend. The book stipend is calculated based on $41.67 per credit per semester; it does have a $1,000 yearly cap. The MHA is calculated based on the zip code of her school and the number of credits she is taking.

Ron,
Im a veteran that was in active duty 80′ to 84′ and used the GI bill to go to college (max. was $8,400). While it was helpful, the $8,400 didnt last long and didn’t cover my 4 years needed to graduate, so i couldn’t afford to continue college and graduate. Are there any other college benefits that I would qualify for or for my daughters college?
