    Question GI Bill & BAH question

    Advertisements
    DB is getting out of AD soon and is considering using the GI Bill. I was just wondering if he will have to take a certain amount of credits to be able to receive the housing allowance? I'm assuming he would have to be a full time student to qualify but I'm not sure.

    To get the full BAH he would have to go full time. Now you can be a part time student and receive half BAH, and now taking online classes you can get some BAH.

    This is from the IAVA. He can use it to see how much of his schooling will be covered.

    Also a heads up- months where classes aren't in session all 4 weeks only get a percentage of MHA. For instance in Dec, if classes end on the 17th he would only get about 50% of MHA, and same with January. So don't count on full amounts each month.
