How Much Would the State of Georgia Pay Me in Addition to My Post 9/11 GI Bill Housing Allowance?

Q: I’m currently an active duty soldier. I ETS in October of next year, and I plan on moving back to Georgia and use my GI Bill. I’m having trouble finding how much Georgia gives you for BAH and for school.

A: If you are talking about using your federal GI Bill, such as the Post 9/11 GI Bill, the VA determines how much you would get and not the state of Georgia. If you plan on attending a public school, then the VA would pay up to 100% of your resident tuition (providing you have at least three years of service). If you choose to attend a private school, then they would pay up to $19,198.31 per year. Tuition payments are made directly to your school.

As far as the housing allowance, it is determined by the zip code of your school and the number of credits you take. For example, if you went to a school full-time in Atlanta’s zip code of 30302 (Georgia State University), you would get $1,326 per month.

You would also get the book stipend once per semester. It calculates at $41.67 per credit up to the $1,000 per year maximum.

I’m not finding much as far as the State of Georgia funding post-secondary education, except for On-The-Job training and apprenticeships. As an active duty veteran, you could get up to $15,480 in tax-free benefits if you complete a 24-month OJT or apprenticeship program. From what I can tell, they don’t have anything for degree-producing programs.
