I was reading the financial aid website earlier and noticed that we are allowed to add the cost of a computer to our financial aid package once while in school. So, is it possible that the cost of that computer could just come out of the funds already committed above the full cost of tuition without taking a loan?
I haven't yet asked my financial aid office, and I feel slightly penny pinchy even wondering, but I'm spoiled by my work laptop that will go away in less than 45 days.
I don't think so. The VA pays the tuition and fees required for the degree program. Computers are not required and thus the VA will not pay. While the size of your financial aid package can be increased for laptops, it just means you get the pleasure of borrowing more money if necessary.
