Can I Use My Post 9/11 GI Bill to Attend School In England?

Q: Hello, I am looking to study abroad in England during the spring of 2011. I am currently signed up for the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill under my current university. My question is, can I study abroad using my benefits? If so, how do I ensure I receive my benefits for the program? Thank you for your help.

A: Yes, you can use your Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits to study at a school in England. The first step, however, is ensuring your school has foreign-school approval by the VA. To check if your school is approved, use the VA’s school locator and click on the Country button. From the drop-down menu click on England, then click on the Submit button.

If your school is not listed, then they will have to apply for VA approval before you will be able to use your GI Bill at that school. Also, here is a fact sheet for you to read.

Post 9/11 GI Bill payment rates are handled differently for students attending foreign schools. The VA will pay, directly to your school, up to $408.09 per credit hour and $10,502.97 in eligible fees per term. Twelve credits per term is considered full-time. You will get a fixed amount of $1,333 per month in a housing allowance, plus up to $1,000 per year in a book stipend.

To change your benefits from one school to another, resubmit VA Form 22-1990e with you new school information.
