An Introduction to Army Spouse Education Benefits

Army wives and husbands make tremendous sacrifices when their spouses serve on active duty, including long separations and frequent relocations. In recognition of these sacrifices, the U.S. Army offers benefits to Army wives and husbands, including education funds for military spouses. Because military families often must move around from base to base, Army spouse education programs are flexible, allowing the pursuit of part-time and online education programs.

What Are the Available Education Programs for Military Spouses?

Post-9/11 GI Bill Transfer

Among the most beneficial Army spouse education programs, the Post-9/11 GI Bill Transfer entitles Army wives, husbands, and children to all of the education benefits qualified Army members receive under the program. The program is available to Army personnel who have accumulated at least 90 days of active duty on or after September 11, 2001 and received an honorable discharge. Additionally, veterans who served 30 days, but then received an honorable discharge for a service-related disability can also qualify.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill Transfer covers up to 100 percent of the tuition and fees for Army spouses enrolled in a degree program. The maximum benefit is capped at the cost of tuition and fees at the most expensive in-state public college.
