By STARS AND STRIPES Published: August 28, 2014

The Department of Veterans Affairs on Thursday launched a new version of the GI Bill Comparison Tool, which is designed to make it easier for veterans, servicemembers, and dependents to estimate their education benefits and learn more about VA’s approved college, university, and other education and training programs across the country.

According to a White House news release, the program also provides key information about college affordability and value so beneficiaries can choose the best education program to meet their needs.

In the past 6 months, the release said, nearly 350,000 people have accessed the tool on VA’s GI Bill website. The top schools searched by users include: American Public University, Harvard, University of Texas at Austin, Arizona State University, and University of Washington.
