The Post-9/11 GI Bill program is comprised of multiple payments.
Tuition & Fees
- Some of the benefits the Post-9/11 GI Bill will pay include:
- Your full tuition & fees directly to the school. Please note that VA will pay at the resident rate.
Monthly Housing Allowance
- Your Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) is generally the same as the military Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) for an E-5 with dependents. Your MHA is based on the ZIP code for your school.
- A yearly books and supplies stipend of up to $1000 paid proportionately based on enrollment.
- You need to verify your attendance every month before payment is issued if you are attending an Institution of Higher Learning (IHL) or Non-College Degree (NCD) program and are receiving one of the following:
- Montgomery GI Bill - Active Duty
- Montgomery GI Bill - Selected Reserve
- Reserve Educational Assistance Program - REAP
- Veterans Retraining Assistance Program - VRAP
