The Post 9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
The Post 9/11 GI Bill pays tuition based upon the highest in-state tuition charged by an educational institution in the state. The tuition rates for University College are less than the highest public in-state rate which means ALL your tuition may be paid for based on the amount of service completed after September 11, 2001.
