Next Steps

You can explore the overall cost of college with the Wright State Cost Estimator.

Here are some important items to consider:

  • GI Bill Chapters 1606 (National Guard/Reserve), 30 (Montgomery or “Old” GI Bill), and 35 (Dependents Educational Assistance Program) do not pay tuition and fees. You will receive a monthly stipend.
  • Flex terms and summer terms are reported as separate enrollments and can affect monthly stipends. Please see a staff member if you have questions about your program and terms.
  • Certain financial aid can impact Post 9/11 (Chapter 33) benefits by reducing the amount of tuition and fees the school can report.

We do recommend completing the FAFSA as part of your process. Please contact the VMC or RaiderConnect with questions.
