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
