Post-9/11 GI Bill Education Benefits
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, under the Post-9/11 GI Bill, pays up to $25,162.14 per academic year for a private school, effective August 1, 2020. If you are entitled to 100 percent of Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, you will receive $25,162.14 per year at Georgetown Law Center. If you are eligible for these benefits, but at a rate less than 100 percent, multiply that rate by $25,162.14 to find your annual benefit for tuition and fees. For example, if you are entitled to 70 percent of the benefit, you would receive $17,613.40 per year ($25,162.14 x 70%). Information on eligibility, including rate tables and a benefits calculator, is provided on the Department of Veterans Affairs’ website.
Yellow Ribbon Program at Georgetown Law Center
Georgetown Law Center proudly participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to the GI Bill entitlement. Veterans Affairs (VA) will match that amount and issue payment directly to the Law School. At present, Georgetown Law will make a Yellow Ribbon Program Award of an unlimited amount. Thus, with VA’s matching contribution, such students can receive a matching amount toward tuition and fees after their Yellow Ribbon Benefits have been applied. Please note that active duty members are not eligible to receive Yellow Ribbon benefits.
