What is the Post-9/11 GI Bill?

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 will become effective for training on or after August 1, 2009. The amount of support that an individual may qualify for depends on where they live and what type of degree they are pursuing. For a summary of Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, see the benefit comparison chart.

Approved training under the Post-9/11 GI Bill includes graduate and undergraduate degrees, and vocational/technical training. All training programs must be offered by an institution of higher learning (IHL) and approved for GI Bill benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply for Tuition Assistance?

Applying for tuition assistance is a fairly easy process.  First and foremost you must be accepted to an accredited college or university.  Second, you must know what your class schedule is going to be.  Third, you must apply for tuition assistance up to 60 days before the beginning of the school semester but no later than 7 days past the class start date. (For more information click on the Federal Tuition Assistance link)

What if I don't know my class schedule?

Most schools allow you to register for courses well in advance of the start date utilizing the internet.  As a college student you have a pretty good idea of the courses you must take each semester to stay on course for graduation.  You can make updates to TA request, if needed.



It appears there are several education programs in Utah?

Correct!  Utah has two additional programs:

State Tuition Waiver (STW) program which is a scholarship program.  Each Utah State College or University has set aside 2 1/2 percent of their scholarship money for Utah Guard Members.

State Tuition Assistance (STA) Program mirrors the Federal Tuition Assistance program. The Utah Legislature sets aside additional funding to assist our Air and Army Guard members with their educational needs.

How do I know which program to use?

The education office will allow you to utilize programs in conjunction with other educational programs to maximize your benefits.  You can utilize the STW program in conjunction with your GI Bill and STA/FTA program. (Click on the above links for more information)

NOTE-You CANNOT combine STA/FTA for a total of 9,000.00 dollars.  You can combine STA or FTA with the State Tuition Waiver to pay for fees or credits not covered by the scholarship program.
