Do I Get the Full Housing Allowance Because I’m 60% Disabled?

Q: Hello, I have a couple of questions actually. First, I was medically discharge from the military back in 2008, I’ve heard “rumors” that because I was disabled of 60%, I get full bah? Second, does the Post 9/11 cover community colleges? And finally where can I enroll for the Post 9/11?

A: To answer your first question, what you heard is just that – a rumor. The Post 9/11 GI Bill housing allowance is based on your rate of pursuit as a student. As long as at least one class is taken on campus, and you are carrying enough credits per term to classify you as a greater-than-half-time student, you will get the full housing allowance. How many credits that ends up being depends on the number of credits your school considers to be full-time. You need to carry at least 51% of that number. Your other classes per term could be online if you want.

For your second question, yes the Post 9/11 GI Bill does cover community colleges. Typically, these are two-year schools that issue associate’s degrees which is one of the degrees covered by the New GI Bill.

To start using your Post 9/11 GI Bill, go to the VONAPP website and submit VA Form 22-1990. Once your form is approved, you will get back a Certificate of Eligibility. Take the certificate with you when you go to enroll in school as a GI Bill student. That’s it!
