The information generated by this calculator is based on the following assumptions:
1.) Calculations are based on a two-semester, nine month school year comprised of at least 12 credits hours of study. Variations from these assumptions are not accounted for.
2.) Calculations for the VA book stipend are not included. The VA book stipend is paid on a per-credit basis with a maximum of $1000 per school year.
Actual Tuition Cost Per Year
Tuition payments are made to the school for the entire quarter, semester or term. The payments are capped at the undergraduate level tuition cost at the most expensive public school in the state. If a veteran goes to a cheaper school, he or she will not receive a check for the difference between the actual tuition cost and the tuition cap.
