New GI Bill starts this fall

Financial aid from the new Post 9/11 GI Bill is available starting this fall.
"The terms of the new bill appear to be relatively clear-cut," USA Today says. "It essentially covers tuition and fees for any eligible veteran pursuing an undergraduate degree in his or her home state."
A check of the GI Bill Web site shows that the word "relatively" is key to the phrase "relatively clear-cut." It is a government program, after all, and includes the usual acronyms, exceptions and conditions.
WSU Veteran's Affairs Coordinator Matt Zimmerman can help. "Go to www.va.wsu.edu and click on the 'apply' link for instructions," he says. That page also has contact information if you need more assistance.
