I think it’s much like any grad program but I’m able to use the GI Bill. I’m taking two classes per quarter and, looking at the bills, it’s about $11k per quarter so around $6k/3credits. You obviously don’t have to take 2 classes/6 credits per quarter, it will just take longer to graduate. I did have to take a quarter off because I used up the yearly GI Bill allowance so I had to start up again when it replenished
