Out of state tuition, GI Bill

<p>My out of state student was accepted, paid the deposit, paid the housing deposit, going to use the Post 9/11 GI Bill to finance tuition. We were APPALLED to find out that the VA (the administrators of the GI Bill) changed the formula for payment, and that, AFTER the GI Bill AND a Chancellor's scholarship, we would be expected to pay around $10,000 per SEMESTER! That's $80,000 for a 4 year degree. This was unacceptable, so we had to dis-enroll our student and send said student to an in-state school where a full tuition merit scholarship is to be had. Then CU would not refund our deposits! It's not as if we playing games - the rules changes after the fact. </p>

<p>I would suggest that out of state students look long and hard at the tuition numbers. Unless you have a full ride scholarship or are uber-wealthy, stay home. I'm sure your own state can satisfy your needs. It's an education. It shouldn't cost your future.</p>

<p>Don’t think anything with the GI Bill has changed. It pays the highest in state tuition for the state you live in. There is some other money through the yellow ribbon program paid for by the school but that is it.</p>
