Choice Act Waiver
The University of Idaho has generously expanded the Choice Act for Veterans to include all out-of-state veterans with GI Bill benefits, regardless of when they were discharged. Chapter 33 Veterans, whom have exhausted their CH33 and Yellow Ribbon benefit, will be considered eligible under the University of Idaho's expansion.The 2014 Choice Act for Veterans was signed into law by President Obama on Aug. 7, 2014. The law went into effect on July 1, 2015.
The law prevents state colleges or universities from charging out-of-state tuition to students who are within three years of discharge from active duty (defined as a period of 90 days or more) and using the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB, Chapter 30) or Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33). It also applies to dependents who have received benefits transferred to them, if the service member has been discharged within the past three years.
