Can I Take Classes Online from the Philippines At 1/4 time or Less and Still Get MGIB Pay?

Q: I live in the Philippines. Can I take classes online for 1/4 time or less and get paid? I have the MGIB. If so how do I sign up for classes?

A: You can, but you are not going to get much for it. Depending on whether you have less than three years of service or more than three will determine how much you will get. With three years or more, the most you can get for ┬╝ time is $368.25 per month. If you have less than three years, then it drops to $299.

Keep in mind because you are using the Montgomery GI Bill, out of those amounts you have to pay your own tuition/fees, books, etc.

As far as “signing up for classes”, I’m not sure if you actually meant that or if you meant signing up to use your MGIB. To sign up for classes, you just have to go to your school’s website and sign up according to their procedures, but you should do that after your get your Certificate of Eligibility. To get your Certificate, go to the eBenefits website and submit VA Form 22-1990. In 8 to 10 weeks (if you are lucky), you will get it.

Then go online to your school and register for classes. You need your certificate to enroll as a GI Bill student. Also, don’t forget that because you are using the MGIB, you also have to verify your enrollment monthly using the WAVE system or you won’t get paid.
