IAVA Statement on CA New GI Bill Tuition Fix

by Patrick Campbell

IAVA issued the following statement in response to the announcement from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) regarding the new GI Bill tuition benefit in CA:

"Today, the VA issued a critical decision that will help tens of thousands of new veterans attend colleges in California. IAVA led the fight for this fix and we are pleased to see such a prompt and positive response. With this announcement, California veterans will receive $287 per credit, whereas before these veterans would have received nothing toward their tuition costs simply due to a wording technicality. This is an especially huge win for vets attending graduate programs or private universities where they could now receive $8,500 more per year."
