Education Office?

Does anybody here know how much the GI Bill will pay for Excelsior courses?

Im debating whether to sign up with the $130 enrollment and take 12units through courses with them ($250/unit) since i gotta take a 3unit capstone anyway. Or if i should pay the $750 enrollment fee and $450 graduation fee and pay for 9units threw exams and/or cheap Penn Foster classes.

Overall it would be cheaper to drop down the $750 enrollment and get the 9UL credits i need elsewhere and then take the capstone than it would be to pay the 130 and take 12units throw Excelsior.
HOWEVER - if the military will help pay for like half, it might actually be cheaper to do the $130 enrollment option.

What do you guys think?

Do some googling. Since Excelsior is in new york the GI Bill will pay 100% up to the most expensive public institution. Im pretty sure that means they will cover Excelsior 100%, but you still have to pay the enrollment fee. Also keep in mind that the Gi Bill will only pay if you take at least one class. I found this out the hard way with TESC. Turns out the VA will not shell out cash unless there is a term start and term end date on the paperwork, this comes from the TESC employees that submit the claims to the VA. I had to sign up for one class even though I had all the credits needed for my AAS.
