Is It Possible to Take Classes Using the Post 9/11 GI Bill At Two Separate Schools?

Q: I am currently looking into a program at Career Training Solutions in VA. I need to take 5 classes this summer. The summer classes offered at VA Western CC conflict with each other. So I would like to take a couple online classes from Mount Olive CC, I have previously attended there. Would this be possible as far as payment goes?

A: It should be. How this works with taking classes at two schools is Career Training Solutions (CTS) (the one issuing your degree) is called the parent school. Mount Olive is called your secondary school. You have to coordinate which classes you want to take at Mount Olive with CTS. CTS then sends a letter to Mount Olive informing them of the classes you would take from them. Once you are finished with the Mount Olive classes, they send over a transcript of your credits to CTS and they post the credits to your degree plan.

Note the classes you take at Mount Olive have to apply and get credited to your CTS degree plan before the VA would pay for them.

Also, if you only take online classes, and no on campus classroom classes, then your Post 9/11 GI Bill monthly housing allowance would max out at $674 per month if you are attending full-time. If you are part-time, then your MHA would be pro-rated accordingly to the number of credits you take.

If you take at least one class per semester on campus (that applies to your degree plan), then your MHA could be significantly higher.
