I am attending a private school and receiving Post-9/11 GI Bill Chapter 33 benefits. Unfortunately, my work schedule has changed and I am not able to attend college in resident. Is it possible to attend online only? And if so, will I receive the same monthly housing allowance since I will be attending the same school?
If you attend online exclusively (no classroom instruction), your housing allowance will change to the national average. The 2017-2018 allowance is $840.50 per month. If you take one credit as a resident and the remaining classes online, your housing allowance remains the same. Remember, if your semester starts in August your first check will be in September, since VA pays at the beginning of each month for the previous month.
