MESSAGE FOR STUDENTS IN RECEIPT OF POST 9/11 GI BILL®
S.3503 into law on March 21, 2020 - extended to December 21, 2021
With the passage of H.R.8337 - Continuing Appropriations Act, 2021 and Other Extensions Act, the special COVID rules have been extended. Post 9/11 GI Bill® students who pursue resident courses converted to an online modality solely due to COVID 19 will continue to receive the Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) rate for resident training. The law only authorizes this special authority from March 01, 2020, to December 21, 2021. The new law applies equally to current and new students enrolled in the converted courses.
AS A REMINDER:
Only converted courses - online courses cannot be paid as resident courses.
