If I Did Not Use the GI Bill Before Time Expired, Do I Still Get the Hazelwood Act?


Q: If I did not use GI Bill before time expired, do I still get the Hazelwood Act?

A: You do provided you meet the eligibility requirements for the Hazelwood Act. They are:“Effective with the fall 2009 term/semester, in order to be eligible to receive a Hazlewood Act Exemption, a Veteran must:
• Have been a Texas resident upon entry into the military, entered into active federal duty in the State of Texas, or declared Texas as his or her home of record at the time of entry into the armed forces as documented on his or her DD Form 214;
• Have a military discharge of honorable or general, under honorable conditions;
• Served at least 181 days of active duty service (excluding training);
• Not be in default on an education loan made or guaranteed by the State of Texas and not in default on a federal loan if that default is the reason the student cannot use his or her federal veterans’ benefits.”

Also, to use your benefits, you must also reside in Texas – that is a new requirement for the 2011/2012 academic year. As you know, under the Hazelwood Act, you get 150 hours of education benefits that you can use at a Texas public school. Your Hazelwood Act cannot be used at any private school at this time. So you should have Hazelwood Act benefits even if your GI Bill has expired.
