Montgomery GI Bill (Chapter 30)
Administered by the Federal Government, Office of Veterans Affairs
What is it?The Original Montgomery GI Bill is an education program that provides up to 36 months of educational benefits to an eligible student. It directly pays the veteran a monthly amount based on eligibility, rate of training and type of training. It expires after 10 years or after the 36 months is used up, whichever comes first.
To qualify a student must: 1. Be honorably discharged. 2. Have had at least 1 year active duty. 3. Have entered active duty for the first time after 06/30/1985.
There may be other scenarios which may make you eligible.Access this information via the website noted below.
Now what?Once all the paperwork has been reviewed by our office and your status as a student in good standing* has been confirmed, we will certify your classes. Payments will be sent directly to you. It is up to you to confirm your enrollment, monthly, through the VA website when appropriate.
