Tuition Covered for Residents of Idaho
If you live in Idaho and you qualify for full benefits, your tuition and fees will be covered by your Post-9/11 benefits. If you live outside of Idaho and it has been less than three years since your discharge there is a chance that Boise State University will consider you an in-state student anyways. Idaho is one of the few states where this reciprocity is not guaranteed so you will want to verify this with them directly.

Yellow Ribbon Program Participant But With Limitations
If you have tuition and fees charges that are not covered by your Post-9/11 benefits, you may be able to get additional assistance in the form of a Yellow Ribbon Award. While Boise State University participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, it places some limitations on the awards it grants, so your participation in this program is not guaranteed.
Boise State University awarded a total of $29,210 in Yellow Ribbon benefits last year. This was split among 8 veterans for an average award of $3,651 ($7,302 after government matching).
The following table may show you how likely you are to have outstanding tuition costs covered by the Yellow Ribbon Program at Boise State University. Remember, contributions from the college will be matched by the VA.
