In July of 2008 the Post-9/11 GI Bill was signed into law, creating a new robust education benefits program rivaling the WWII Era GI Bill of Rights. The new Post 9/11 GI Bill, which goes into effect on August 1, 2009, will provide education benefits for service members who have served on active duty for 90 or more days since Sept. 10, 2001. These benefits are tiered based on the number of days served on active duty, creating a benefit package that gives current and previously activated National Guard and Reserve members the same benefits as active duty service members.
The Department of Veterans Affairs is currently accepting applications for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Once the VA has received your application they will determine your eligibility for the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and issue you a Certificate of Eligibility.
These new education benefits include the following:
- Up to 100% Tuition and Fee Coverage
- A Monthly Living (Housing) Stipend
- Up to $1000 a year for Books and Supplies
- A One Time Relocation Allowance
- The Option to Transfer Benefits to Family Members
- Other Benefits
You may apply for your benefits online at Veterans Online Application System after choosing from one of our courses. You may also come in to meet with one of our Admission Specialist to discuss your education options.
