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.
***If you are using TN Reconnect and Post 9/11 at the same time, the tuition cost will be deducted from the post 9/11 and reported to the VA, therefore you'd be using your post 9/11 just to pay for fees (which amounts to approximately $150 per semester). If you use both Reconnect and 9/11 at the same time, you'll receive the VA book stipend of $41.67 per credit hour and monthly housing allowance (which is now dependent on your site zip code). As a result, inform me if you choose to use Reconnect and Post 9/11 at the same time, or you choose to use one or the other.
***For FALL 2018 semester, if you are a Veteran or dependent in receipt of VA education benefits, contact me to make an academic advising appointment.***
***If you have any questions or concerns with admissions, academic advising and/or financial aid (FAFSA, pell grants, Hope/Tn Promise & Re-Connect), don’t hesitate to contact me.
****The Helping Heroes Grant does not count against your GI Bill® benefits. The grant is available each year to as many as 375 eligible veterans on a first-come, first-serve basis and will award $1,000 to students completing at least twelve (12) semester hours each term. Applicants need to have been awarded The Iraq Campaign Medal, The Afghanistan Campaign Medal, or The Global War on Terrorism expeditionary Medal.
