University of the Potomac provides tuition assistance, GI Bill® & Yellow Ribbon programs, and credit transfers for Active Duty Military, families of service members, and Veterans.
Any veteran who has served at least 90 days of active duty after September 11, 2001 and received an honorable discharge is eligible to take advantage of the Post 9/11 GI Bill®. Veterans who served 30 days but were honorably discharged for a service-related disability also qualify for the new GI Bill® benefits. Some of the great new benefits include:
- Tuition paid directly to schools
- A housing allowance
- Money for books and school supplies
- Up to $2,000 for tutorial services or certification examinations
- $500 to individuals relocating from highly rural areas to attend college
These new GI Bill® benefits are transferable to immediate family members and will cover up to 36 months of schooling. The Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits expire 15 years after separation from the Armed Forces, so find out if you’re eligible and start working towards your bright future today.
“GI Bill®” is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website at www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
