Veterans Typically Attend Boise State University for no More Than $2,707

If you qualify for full benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® we estimate that your yearly out of pocket cost to attend Boise State University should not be more than $2,707.

Guaranteed Post-9/11 Benefits$21,276
Total Out Of Pocket$2,707

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.

Veteran Tuition And Fees$8,068
Guaranteed Post-9/11 Benefit*$8,068
Total In Your Pocket-$0
*Note: The tuition benefit is capped at the lessor of the actual tuition charged to you or $20,235.
Remember, some forms of aid such as Pell Grants are awarded in addition to your Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits so be sure to fill out your FASA forms.

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.

Remember, only veterans who qualify for full Post-9/11 benefits are eligible to participate in a Yellow Ribbon program.

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.
