About the GI Bill® Calculator

The GI Bill® Calculator was developed with data from the Department of Education and Veterans Affairs. 

Veterans can use the tool to calculate costs and compare up to three colleges at once. Users will quickly learn a college's sticker price, the school's average Yellow Ribbon award, how many benefits will be paid to them and how much to the school, as well as room and board fees, their military housing allowance, and costs of books and supplies.
