Post 9/11 - GI Bill® Expands Support for Online Students

Recent changes to the Post - 9/11 GI Bill®  will introduce a pro-rated monthly housing allowance of up to $673.50 for students who wish to take courses online and expanded eligibility to include active service performed by National Guard members. In some cases, these benefits can also be transferred to eligible dependents.

The Post- 9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Improvements Act of 2010 will take effect on August 1, 2011. Active duty service members, military veterans and their families are encouraged to visit the Rio Salado College Military Central webpage to find out how Rio Salado College can help turn your military experience into a rewarding civilian career path.
