Personnel using GI Bill® benefits will pay out of state charges at Virginia State supported schools unless they are Virginia residents. The one year waiting period to establish residency may be waived for active duty members who choose to pay Virginia income tax. To initiate payment of Virginia income tax, members should contact the dispersing office maintaining their pay record and complete a DD 2058 in duplicate.
