Would My Wife’s Post 9/11 GI Bill Benefits Pay for a Real Estate Class in Florida?

Author Ron Kness is no longer in the service.

Q: I have transferred my Post 9/11 GI Bill to my wife and kids and I know my wife wants to attend a $500 Florida real estate license school on Tues and Thurs. How can I get this covered by my benefits?

A: It may be difficult to get her training paid for by the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Most real estate license courses are not taught by VA-approved or accredited schools – both requirements to use the GI Bill.

In using the College Navigator program, however, I did find one school in Hollywood, FL – the Sheridan Technical Center – that teaches a real estate program by distance learning.

She could use her Post 9/11 GI Bill to pay for online classes and she would get up to $714.50 per month in housing allowance in addition to her book stipend of $83 per month.

However, when I go into their website, I can’t find a Real Estate Course, so she may want to contact them first and ask if they still teach real estate.

Also, she would be able to get her Post 9/11 GI Bill to reimburse her for the cost (or at least part) of the Real Estate Test. Under the current rules, it would pay up to $45.50 in the State of Florida. So even if she can’t get her course paid for, at least she could use some of her Post 9/11 GI Bill to help pay for the certification test.
