Attend Iowa State University as a Veteran and Walk Away With at Least $1,548
Thanks to the Post-9/11 GI Bill® (assuming you fully qualify), we expect your yearly benefits to exceed your cost to attend Iowa State University by at least $1,548.
|Veteran Sticker Price||$21,940|
|Guaranteed Post-9/11 Benefits||$23,488|
|Total In Your Pocket||$1,548|
Tuition Covered for Residents of Iowa
If you live in Iowa and you qualify for full benefits, your tuition and fees will be covered by your Post-9/11 benefits. If you live outside of Iowa and it has been less than three years since your discharge there is a chance that Iowa State University will consider you an in-state student anyways. Iowa 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||$9,320|
|Guaranteed Post-9/11 Benefit*||$9,320|
|Total In Your Pocket||-$0|
|*Note: The tuition benefit is capped at the lessor of the actual tuition charged to you or $20,235.|
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 Iowa 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.
Iowa State University awarded a total of $23,978 in Yellow Ribbon benefits last year. This was split among 9 veterans for an average award of $2,664 ($5,329 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 Iowa State University. Remember, contributions from the college will be matched by the VA.
