Maximum Post-9/11 GI Bill Tuition and Fee Benefit Increases

January 9, 2013

The annual increase in the Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefit has been calculated for the 2013-14 academic year, allowing eligible veterans to receive up to $19,198.31 for tuition and fees at independent institutions. VA will continue to pay the net cost of tuition and fees not exceeding in-state amounts for students attending public institutions.

The increase, a statutory requirement, mirrors the increase in the average cost of undergraduate tuition in the United States, as determined by the Department of Education. ED used data from the 2011-12 academic year to calculate the 6.2 percent increase for the 2013-14 academic year, which is effective beginning August 1, 2013. A notice of the increase appeared in the Federal Register on December 26, 2012 .
