|Use your Military Service experience and jump start your Career!
Education is one of the reasons for joining the military. The armed services
offer a vast number of educational benefits. Using these benefits can make it
possible for you to completely pay for all of your schooling. Some benefits can
be used while you are on active duty, and some after you leave the service.
Getting a college degree is essential for your career - both when you're in the
military and when you leave to enter the civilian job market. Taking advantage
of the education benefits you earned can be the key to securing your future!
The G.I. Bill is the focus of the armed services educational benefits program.
There is one G.I. Bill for Active Duty Members and Veterans in which you may
earn up to $1034 per month for school or training. The G.I. Bill for Reservists
has a reduced benefit, with up to $297 per month for school or training. The
G.I. Bill provides up to 36 months of education and training benefits for:
- College Tuition
- Business Courses
- Distance Learning
- Correspondence Courses
- Technical or Vocational Training
- Apprenticeship or Job Training
- Professional or Technical Certification Tests
If you're a full-time student enrolled in a Regionally or Nationally Accredited
College or University, you can get up to $1034 a month (current rates) to cover
education benefits, including vocational or technical programs. It all adds up to a
total benefit package of over $37,000 - and these benefits are increasing every
year. Your military training, courses, and occupational specialty can all be
considered for college credit. In addition, many schools offer members of the
United States Armed Forces and their spouses valuable discounts and benefits
for education and technical training.
Tip: Don't delay in using the GI Bill - the benefits are usually good only up to 10
years after you separate from the military. Earning your undergraduate,
graduate, technical degree or certification can advance your military career or
open doors for you in the civilian job market.
