Can I Still Go to School under the Post 9/11 GI Bill If I’m Working in Germany?

Q: I am currently enrolled in the Post 9/11 GI Bill and have been offered a job in Germany (as a contractor working at Coleman Barrack). I’m enrolled with Park College and I’ve got three more classes to go to obtain my Bachelor’s degree. Can I continue taking my degree with Park (online) and still qualify for the full benefits (tuition and VHA)? Also, I would like to keep going to school and pursue my Master’s degree, most likely with Park, and I’m wondering if the benefits would be available there also? Thank you much for your attention.

A: You can continue your schooling online for as long as you have Post 9/11 GI Bill monthly benefits left and if Park College offers the classes you need online. Keep in mind that you most likely only have 36 months of benefits, which is enough for a four-year degree.

Not all courses or programs they offer may be offered online. Some programs, such as engineering and the sciences, require labs which you must do on campus, so it can be dependent your bachelor’s or master’s degree focus. If your school offers them, you shouldn’t have a problem taking the courses you need.

However the Post 9/11 GI Bill housing allowance pay structure is different between taking on campus, online only or online/on campus mix. If you are a full-time student taking all online classes, your monthly housing allowance will max out at $673.50. That amount was established by implementing the GI Bill 2.0; before that, an online only student didn’t get any housing allowance. With on campus only or on campus/online mix, you would get the full amount.

Everything else about using the Post 9/11 GI Bill will be the same – the VA will pay your tuition directly to your school and you will get a book stipend once each semester, along with your monthly housing allowance.
