Where Can I Find a List of VA-Approved Schools in China?
Q: Is there a link to the list to the pre-approved Chinese schools?
A: Yes there is! Just go to the Weams website and click on the COUNTRY button. Click on China from the drop-down menu and then click on the SUBMIT button. You will see a list of 16 schools come up. If the school you are looking at attending is not on the current list, you can ask the school if they would like to become a foreign VA-approved school.
If you use the Post 9/11 GI Bill as a foreign student, you are paid differently than if you were attending school in the United States. The VA will pay up to $439.69 per credit for tuition and up to $13,713.88 per term for fees. You will get paid $1,311 per month in a housing allowance, along with the book stipend which is up to $1,000 per year.
If you use the Montgomery GI bill, then you get the fixed amount of $1,426 per month, but you have to pay your own tuition, fees, living expenses and other education-related expenses.
