Will I Get My Housing Allowance for This One Month?

Q: I have a question regarding my housing allowance. I am currently registered full time. I take 3 classes online and 1 on-campus. I had to drop the on-campus class but registered for another on-campus class. It is still for the same term but starts one month later. So for one month I will be registered with still 9 hours but they are all online. Will I still receive my housing for that month?

A: No, for that one month where you are not taking an on-campus class, you will not get the housing allowance. Even though you are taking the required number of credits to warrant the housing allowance, the Post 9/11 GI Bill rules are very specific in noting that online-only students are not authorized the housing allowance.

Note this will change starting this fall, with the passage of the GI Bill 2.0. Online-only students will get up to $673 and some change in a monthly housing allowance. While it is only half of what an on-campus or on-campus/online student gets, it is far better than the nothing they get now.
