Changes to the Post-9/11 GI Bill: There are many important changes that may affect a student using their VA educational benefits. Keep up to date on the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

Yellow Ribbon Program: The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Act of 2008. The program provides an agreement to award scholarships to qualified students by funding tuition and fees that exceed benefits available under the Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33).

Licensing and Certification: You can receive reimbursement for licensing and certification tests. The VA will only pay for the cost of the tests, up to $2,000. Visit the VA for eligibility requirements and other relevant information.

National Testing Program: The VA will reimburse eligible students for national tests. Under the Post-9/11 GI Bill you will be charged one month of entitlement for each test taken or each $1,460 reimbursed (whichever is less). Visit the VA for a current list of approved national tests.

Benefit Comparison Chart: There are various educational benefits available to veterans. See the VA Benefit Comparison Chart to make the most informed decision.
