I'm training at a new school (which is awesome!) and was wondering how do I go about removing a patch on my gi? I'm looking to buy a new gi but money's tight. I'm pretty sure its stitched on so any advice?

what, what?
You should look for a gi with no patched and buy that one. For regular bjj guys a judo gi will work fine and seldomly have patches.

Go to any sewing or craft store and ask for a stitch remover. It is like a tiny knife gizmo designed to pull out stitches without cutting the fabric. Bring the Gi along and show the folks who work there. They might even do it for you for a few bucks.

If it is ironed on you're screwed.

You can also try an exacto knife. Looks a bit like a scalpel, works just as well, and is probably a bit less expensive. That's what I used to remove my old patches. You get it at any arts and crafts stores. I think even Walgreens has em for about $5.
