GI Bill® Education Programs

The category of benefits you may receive will depend upon when you served, your length of service, and other factors. You must be admitted to the college in a degree or certificate-seeking program to receive benefits.

Assistance including tuition and fees, books, supplies, and housing stipend depends upon your Letter of Eligibility rating from the VA.

To see an overview of available education programs, visit the GI Bill® website.

To ask VA a question, to log on to e-benefits, to see frequently asked questions, and to explore in more detail the VA GI Bill® benefits, visit the Veteran's Education Website.
