What Do I Do Next to Convert to the Post 9/11 GI Bill?


Q: I want to convert my MGIB to the Post 9/11 GI Bill so I can begin a program in Homebuilding Interdisciplinary studies. I’m completing a 22-1990 form to convert. What do I do next?

A: You are on the right track;once your VA Form 22-1990 is processed and approved (and that can take up to 10 weeks), you will get your Certificate of Eligibility from the VA. The certificate shows which GI Bill you are using (Post 9/11 GI Bill), how many months of benefits you have left to use and your delimitation date (the date in which your benefits will expire). You need to hand in a copy of your certificate to your school when you register for classes.

If you had all 36 months of your MGIB benefits left when you transferred GI Bills, then you would get that same number of months under the Post 9/11 GI Bill.

By using the Post 9/11 GI Bill at a public school, the VA would pay your tuition up to the resident undergraduate rate. If your school is private, they can pay up to $18,077.50 per year in tuition costs.

Monthly, and if you are attending classes on-campus, you would get a housing allowance calculated on the zip code of your school and the number of credits you are taking. If all your classes are online, then the most in housing you can get is $684 per month.

Also, you would qualify for the book stipend. If you are attending a degree-producing program, then you would get $41.67 per credit up to the $1,000 per year limit. If you are in a non-degree program, such as a vocational school, then you would get up to $83 per month.
