2022-2023 GI Bill Tuition Rates Out Now!
If you are planning to take courses in the Fall 2022 term, then you need to know how much your Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits will pay. The 2022-2023 GI Bill rates are the best place to start.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) just released the maximum tuition and fee rates for the upcoming academic year, so check it out.
Increase In GI Bill Max Tuition & Fees
The VA will use the maximum entitlement charge amounts for any training taken under the Post-9/11 GI Bill beginning on or after August 1, 2022. The following rates are effective until July 31, 2023:
Post-9/11 GI Bill Maximum Tuition & Fee Amounts
|Type of School||Actual Net Cost of Tuition & Fees, Not to Exceed|
|Public||In-State / Resident Charge|
|Private & Foreign||$26,381.37|
Keep in mind, if you are attending a public Institute of Higher Learning (IHL) as a non-resident student, and the tuition is more expensive than the annual cap listed in the table, then you may be eligible for extra payment under the Yellow Ribbon program. The same applies to non-resident students at private IHLs.
Additionally, you may qualify for in-state tuition rates if you live in the state where the school is located. Your formal state of residence does not preclude you from receiving in-state tuition in this situation.

|Licensing & Certification Tests||Entitlement will be prorated based on the actual amount of the fee charged for the test relative to the rate of $2,200.96 for one month. The maximum reimbursable amount for licensing and certification tests is $2,000.|
|National Tests||Entitlement will be prorated based on the actual amount of the fee charged for the test relative to the rate of $2,200.96 for one month. There is no maximum reimbursable amount for national tests.|
