Will My GI Bill Pay for My EMT Course?


Q: I am currently enrolled at Curry College for my master’s degree, but I’m taking an EMT course at Bridgewater State College. Does the GI Bill cover this course and if so how do I get reimbursed for the class?

A: To a large extent, it depends on which GI Bill you are using. The Montgomery GI Bill does cover the type of course you want to take, but is the EMT class part of your masters’ program? Generally the GI Bill is used to train you into some type of career. If you are taking an additional course not related to your education goal, you will want to check with the VA for their approval as I’m not so sure they will pay for this course.

If you are using the Post 9/11 GI Bill, your EMT course could be covered from the standpoint that non-degree courses can be covered by the New GI Bill, if they are taught at a school also teaching degree-producing courses.

If your EMT course is part of your master’s degree program, then the best way to do it is for Curry to be your “parent” college and Bridgewater your “secondary” school. The EMT credits you earn at Bridgewater would then transfer to Curry and those would be applied to your degree plan. That way everything ties together. Again, if your EMT course is a standalone course, you will have to check with the VA to see if they approve paying for it or not.
