The VA currently offers a tuition maximum of $24,476.79 for the 2019/2020 Academic School year and $25,162.14 for the 2020/2021 school year for students at 100% eligibility as indicated on their Certificate of Eligibility. Students awarded less than 100% of the Post 9/11 GI benefit will be responsible for covering outstanding tuition charges, due on or before the tuition due date. Students are encouraged to apply for federal financial aid for any costs not covered by the Post 9/11 GI Bill. 

The Post-9/11 GI Bill also allows veterans to transfer all or some unused educational benefits to their spouse or dependent children. The Department of Defense (DoD) determines whether or not you can transfer benefits to your family. For more information on transferring your benefits, visit the VA website.

Regis is a proud participant of the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program), a provision of the Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The Yellow Ribbon Program enables institutions like Regis to enter into an agreement with the Veterans Administration (VA) to provide tuition assistance for expenses that exceed the highest public in-state tuition rate.

If tuition expenses exceed the established cap, the Yellow Ribbon Program provides additional funding to use toward tuition. 

*Only certain programs are eligible and qualify for the Yellow Ribbon Program. All graduate science, Regis College, and Rueckert-Hartman programs are excluded from the Yellow Ribbon Program.
