COVID-19 Updates for Veteran Benefits
As of October 1, 2020
We are happy to share some great news with you regarding the impact of COVID-19 on your school’s Post-9/11 GI Bill students!
With the passage of H.R.8337 - Continuing Appropriations Act, 2021 and Other Extensions Act, the special COVID rules have been extended to December 21, 2021. Among other things, Post 9/11 GI Bill students who pursue resident courses converted to an online modality solely due to COVID 19 will continue to receive the MHA rate for resident training.
We will provide more information soon via our FAQ page.
This means when you are looking for courses to enroll in Spring 2021, you have the flexibility to enroll in online courses and receive your housing. The Veteran Services Team will continue to keep you up to date with information as we receive it.
