Veterans Benefits

We're proud to serve our vets!

The educational assistance program administered by the Department of Veterans Administration, under which a potentially eligible veteran and/or service person may be entitled, is largely dependent on when the individual served on active duty. DVA administers 11 educational assistance programs, and the basic eligibility criteria may vary from one to another. Generally, only DVA can determine an applicant's eligibility for educational assistance. In some instances, DVA will rely on the military to make the eligibility determination. It is most important to identify under what program a student may qualify, as the types of benefits payable will vary as well as the types of courses or programs of education that may be certified to DVA.

Below is some valuable information from the Veterans Administration on the Post 9/11 GI Bill. For more complete information about Chapter 33 benefits, Chapter 35 benefits and the other veterans benefits programs, CLICK HERE for their website.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

As of August 1, 2009, the Post-9/11 GI Bill is effective for training. Approved training under the Post-9/11 GI Bill includes graduate and undergraduate degrees, and vocational/technical training. All training programs must be offered by an institution of higher learning (IHL) and approved for GI Bill benefits. Additionally, tutorial assistance, and licensing and certification test reimbursement are approved under the Post- 9/11 GI Bill.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill will pay your tuition based upon the highest in-state tuition charged by a public educational institution in the state where the school is located. The amount of support that an individual may qualify for depends on where they live and what type of degree they are pursuing. For a summary of Compare the Benefits
