Higher Ed For Veterans

WASHINGTON (CN) - Veterans and their dependents have a new option for paying for college as of Aug. 1. The Department of Veterans Affairs has established the Post-9/11 GI Bill, for use by members of the regular Armed Forces who served on active full-time duty after September 10, 2001.

Payments for tuition and fees are paid directly to the school, there is a stipend for books and supplies, and there may be a housing allowance. Length of service after Sept. 10, 2001, determines the amount of money received under the program.

Those eligible to receive benefits include officers of the Public Health Service, officers of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and reserves called to active duty. It does not include members of the National Guard or Active Guard Reserve serving in other capacities.
