What Benefits Am I Eligible to Receive?

Tuition and fees are paid directly to New Horizons based on your percentage of eligibility.
Veterans who served less than 36 total months on active duty will receive a percentage of tuition and fees.

Service periods already pledged to satisfy a service academy active duty obligation, and service periods pledged for education loan repayment purposes, do not count as active duty service to establish eligibility for Post-9/11 GI Bill® education benefits. In general, veterans will receive 36 months of benefits. They have 15 years, from the date of their last separation from active duty, to use the benefits.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill® provides up to 36 months of education benefits. It is payable only for training at an eligible institution. The benefits cover tuition and fees.
