Comparing Schools

We’re pleased to announce the GI Bill® Comparison Tool is now live at

www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/comparison.

The tool assists a student to:

  • Determine their eligibility percentage and then choose resident or online training and their school
  • Choose their status (ie veteran, active duty, spouse, child or reserve/guard)
  • It will then tell them the percentage of T&F payable at that school (if its public) or the max payable (if its private)
  • Calculates the BAH (at full time and considering their eligibility percentage)
  • Provides the max book stipend based on their eligibility percentage

The tool also gives info on the chosen school with regard to:

  1. Principles of Excellence
  2. Yellow Ribbon
  3. Number of VA students at that school
  4. Graduation rates, loan default rates and median borrowing at that school
