1 IF YOU ARE RECEIVING CHAPTER 33 BENEFITS, PLEASE REVIEW THIS PRESENTATION IN ITS ENTIRETY, AS YOUR BENEFITS WILL BE CHANGING EFFECTIVE AUGUST 2011 Changes to Post 9/11 GI Bill

2 BAH Entitlement Currently, if you are enrolled over half time (>50%) you receive BAH at your applicable percentage Change: BAH entitlement will be prorated based on training status- ex. If you are enrolled ¾ time, you will receive ¾ rate BAH (your applicable percentage still applies)- will be rounded to the nearest 10 th.

3 Tuition and Fees If you are approved at 100% and are an instate resident, VA will cover 100% of tuition and fees- this includes all programs, undergrad and grad (even MBA)  If you receive a percentage, VA will still pay that percentage of your tuition and fees  Ex- you are approved at 80%, VA still pays 80% of your tuition/fees Yellow Ribbon program still exists for out of state students approved at 100% In addition, if you receive certain other forms of aid (scholarships, grants etc.) these amounts must be subtracted from the total cost of tuition before we report to VA- you can no longer “double dip”

4 Out of State Students The new law has changed how VA will pay for out of state students In state cap of $606.63/credit hour has been eliminated VA will now only pay the in state rates for out of state students For example: o In state student enrolled full time is charged $ o Out of state student enrolled full time is charged $ o VA will now pay the $ for the out of state student and the difference of $ is the students responsibility

5 Active Duty Active duty are now eligible for the book stipend This change is effective 1 October 2011

6 DE Students Students enrolled in DE programs will now be eligible for BAH at ½ the national rate- approx. $673.50/month  Applicable percentage still applies- if you are approved at 80%, you will receive 80% of this rate  This change is effective 1 October 2011

7 Break Pay Currently, students receive their monthly stipend over a break that is not more than 56 days. Example, students get paid over Christmas break Change- there will be no more break pay for any student for any reason. You will only be paid for days you are in school. Example: Fall semester School starts 17 August- first payment on 1 Sep for 17 Aug- 31 Aug School ends 15 December- last payment on 1 January for 1 Dec- 15 Dec Spring semester School starts 10 January- first payment 1 February for 10 Jan-31 Jan School ends on 15 May- last payment 1 June for 1 May-15 May *** These months are partial BAH months- no payment will come over the summer unless you take summer classes, and will only come for the days enrolled
