Post  9/11 GI Bill® Information

The Department of Veteran Affairs is now accepting and processing applications for the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, which went into effect August 1, 2009. This new GI Bill® is for individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after Sept. 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. Individuals must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible. 

The program benefits may include:

  • Tuition and fees paid directly to the school, not to exceed the maximum in-state tuition and fees at a public institution of higher learning;
  • A monthly housing allowance;
  • An annual books and supplies stipend of $1,000, paid proportionately based on enrollment, and;
  • Other benefits such as college fund ("kicker") payments, a rural benefit payment, and/or a Yellow Ribbon benefit.

To be 100% eligible for the benefit, you must have served an aggregate of 36 months of active duty service, or have been discharged for a service-connected disability after 30 days of continuous service. (Active duty service time required by graduates of a Service Academy or ROTC does not count toward the 36 months needed for full time benefits).

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
