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. Additionally, tutorial
assistance, and licensing and certification test reimbursement are approved under the
Post- 9/11 GI Bill.
If you are also eligible for chapter 30, 1606 or 1607, you may be eligible to pursue
training for on-the-job training, apprenticeship, correspondence, flight and preparatory
courses under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
When will the Post 9/11 GI Bill become effective?
Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits are payable for training pursued on or after August 1, 2009.
Will I receive a retroactive payment under the Post-9/11 GI Bill for classes I am
taking before August 1, 2009?
No. The Post-9/11 GI Bill only covers classes taken or training pursued on or after
August 1, 2009.
I did not contribute $1200 to the GI Bill. Can I still get the Post-9/11 GI Bill?

Yes, if you meet the service requirements for the Post-9/11 GI Bill you will be eligible,
even if you declined to participate in the Montgomery GI Bill.
