GI Bill®

Government-Based Education Assistance

Veterans and active-duty, guard, and reserve service members, as well as their spouses and dependents, can use a variety of GI Bill® benefits to help fund their education.

You can compare benefits easily by using the GI Bill® Comparison Tool and viewing current payment rates.

Forever GI Bill®

The Forever GI Bill® expands the eligibility for and the number of education benefits provided in the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, as well as the length of time veterans have to use them. See Full Details >>

Post-9/11 GI Bill®

Get help with tuition and fees, money for housing, books, and supplies. If you’ve served on active duty after Sept. 10, 2001, you may qualify for the Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33).

If you’re a Reservist who lost education benefits when the Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP) ended in November 2015, you may qualify to receive restored benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill®.

Montgomery GI Bill® — Active Duty

If you have served at least two years on active duty, the Montgomery GI Bill® Active Duty (MGIB-AD) can help you pay for up to 36 months of education benefits. You must meet eligibility requirements in one of four categories. See Full Details >>

Montgomery GI Bill® — Selected Reserve

The Montgomery GI Bill® Selected Reserve (MGIB-SR) program offers up to 36 months of education and training benefits for members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps or Coast Guard Reserve, Army National Guard or Air National Guard. If your obligation started after June 30, 1985, or for some types of training, after Sept. 30, 1990, you may be eligible for this benefit. See Full Details >>

Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E; Chapter 31)

Formerly referred to as Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, this program helps you explore employment options and addresses training needs. In some cases, family members may qualify for certain benefits. See Full Details >>

Yellow Ribbon 

Designed by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, this program aims for the VA and degree-granting institutions to pay the difference between what is covered by GI Bill® benefits and the program’s total cost. Yellow Ribbon funding is automatically applied if tuition exceeds the maximum state cap for tuition reimbursement and if you qualify for Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits at the 100% rate. It does not apply for active-duty service members, spouses, or veterans receiving less than 100% of the benefit.

Our contribution pays the remaining tuition that the Post-9/11 GI Bill® doesn’t cover for all eligible students seeking undergraduate and graduate degrees.
