Maximizing GI Bill Benefits & Transfer of Benefits
Using DANTES, the Yellow Ribbon Program, Scholarships & More
Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits right now are the most generous in the history of the GI Bill. With a maximum of 36 months of benefits that pays tuition, a book stipend and a monthly housing allowance, one would think it is enough to pay for a four-year college degree. And many times, it is.
But in other cases, it does not cover all the costs of going to college today. In this guide we look at several different ways students, who are either veterans or currently serving members, can use to get the most from their GI Bill benefits with the goal being to have as little out-of-pocket expenses as possible.
