As a military serviceperson, a US veteran or dependent of a US veteran, you may qualify for financial support under various GI Bill categories such as active duty, veterans, or reserves. The GI Bill is also available to support your flight training, apprenticeship training, and online training.
Before they were famous, many truly influential men and women started by serving their country in the US military or grew up in military families.

GI Bill and Military Education

Education Options Abound

The GI Bill is called the gold standard in educational support, because more than any other program, it covers the widest variety of educational programs with expanded benefits being added all the time.

As a military serviceperson, a US veteran or a dependent of a US veteran, you may qualify for financial support under various GI Bill categories such as active duty, veterans, or Reservists.

Using your GI Bill, you can even choose to attend more than one college at a time, and earn more than one degree at a time; for example, the GI Bill will pay for your degree in Business and then for a second degree in Computer Science, or for a BA and MA in the same field. Or you can pursue another degree after your first one is completed, using any remaining entitlement on your GI Bill.

The GI Bill entitlement also supports you though training at Non-College-Degree Institutions, for certifications in such areas as:

  • HVAC Certification
  • Truck Driving
  • EMT Certification
  • Barber/Beautician School

The GI Bill is available to support your On-the-Job or Apprenticeship Training, such as:

  • Union Plumber
  • Hotel Management
  • Firefighter

The GI Bill covers Flight Training:

  • Rotary Wing Qualification
  • B747-400 Qualification
  • Dual Qualification

The GI Bill is also available for Independent, Distance or Internet training, and for Correspondence Training, where you receive lessons in the mail and have a certain amount of time to complete and return them for a grade.

The GI Bill supports your participation in many National Testing Programs, such as SAT, GRE, CLEP, GMAT, LSAT, etc.

Co-op training support from the GI Bill support allows you to attend school and gain valuable work experience at the same time. Some schools partner with employers so you can work in your field and attend classes at the same time.

And once you have your military-supported education, if you are a veteran or active military interested in starting your own business, or a current business owner who wants to learn how to boost your small business operation, the GI Bill offers qualified military service members and veterans an opportunity to use your military education benefits to learn how to start up or enhance a small business.

So go ahead. Attend an accredited university, or choose college online and receive your education from home. Explore business courses or vocational training. Boost your military career, start a new career, or create a whole new career niche. Chances are, you'll need a higher education; and chances are even greater that there is educational support from your GI Bill benefits, whether you are active duty military and a veteran, designed to meet your specific goals and needs.
