As a Yellow Ribbon School, Wisconsin is one of the best schools for veterans. In fact, the state of Wisconsin offers its own GI Bill, which remits the remaining tuition that your Post 9/11 GI Bill does not cover. For example, if you are only eligible for 40% of the Post 9/11 GI Bill, the state will pay the remaining 60% of the tuition not covered. For the Wisconsin GI Bill, the veteran must have been a Wisconsin resident at the time of entry into active duty or who have established and maintained status as a Wisconsin resident for at least 5 consecutive years immediately preceding the beginning of any semester or session.
