GI Bill

The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals who have at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after Sept. 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after serving 30 continuous days.

Approved training under the Post-9/11 GI Bill includes undergraduate and graduate degrees and vocational/technical training offered by approved institutions of higher learning.

Based on the length of active duty service, eligible participants are entitled to receive a percentage of the following:
  • Cost of tuition and fees

  • Monthly housing allowance

  • Yearly books and supplies stipend of up to $1,000 per year

  • One-time payment of $500 paid to certain individuals relocating from highly rural areas.
As of Aug. 1, 2009, servicemembers eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill program may transfer unused educational benefits to their spouses or children.
