The student will also receive up to $1,000 per school year for book allowance which is paid directly to them. A housing allowance is also paid to the student.
The student is allowed up to $21,084.89 per school year for tuition and fees. Any tuition and fees that are beyond the $21,084.89 will be paid by VA and Oakland City University.
Oakland City University has renewed its agreement with VA each year since the beginning and will continue to be a part of this program. For more information on the Post 9/11 Yellow Ribbon Program visit www.gibill.va.gov
