GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official US government web site at benefits.va.gov/gibill.
During this difficult time the VA has worked with Congress to preserve GI Bill® benefits for impacted students. This allows the VA to continue to pay benefits regardless of the fact the programs have changed to online training. Also, students will continue to receive the same monthly housing allowance payments that they received for classroom training until January 1, 2021, or until the school resumes normal operations of classroom training. If Veterans have any questions please contact Alyia with the contact information below.
Due to COVID-19, we encourage students to meet with a Financial Aid staff member on the phone, Zoom or Email.
