Attention veterans, spouses and family members using veterans’ education benefits with regards to COVID-19: 

  • Earlier this year the government approved a law that continues GI Bill payments during national emergencies. The new law allows for the VA to continue to pay benefits regardless of the fact that the program has changed from resident training to online training. When classes that would otherwise be on campus are not offered in seated classrooms, students may continue to receive the same monthly housing allowance payments that they received for resident training through December 21, 2021 or until the school resumes normal operations of resident training.
