2008-2009 Maximum In-State Tuition & Fees For The Post-9/11 GI Bill

Preliminary information was previously provided in this table. We are providing the final figures that have been confirmed by State Approving Agencies in accordance with VA's statutory requirement to determine the highest in-state, undergraduate, public tuition as specified in 38 USC 3313(c)(1)(A).  This information has no relationship to, and should not be compared with, average costs of tuition and fees of public institutions within any state commonly referred to when considering educational options. 

This information is being made available to assist veterans and schools with their planning.

What factors were considered when determining the tuition and fees listed?

All undergraduate program costs were taken into consideration to determine the highest in-state maximum tuition per credit hour and the maximum fees per term. These figures may include program tuition for high cost programs such as flight courses taken as part of a degree requirement or undergraduate pharmacy, nursing, and engineering charges.

VA confirmed preliminary information with State Approving Agencies and posted final figures to the Tuition and Fees chart on April 7, 2009. Changes to tuition and/or fees made after that date will have the date and reason documented in the footnote.
