    Question school loan repayment

    Advertisements
    I have heard, but not from any overly reliable sources, that sometimes the college money for soldiers can be used to repay older student loans? DH has some smaller student loans from before he joined the Army, is there anyway some of his money from the Army can go towards those bills? He is planning on completing college after we get stationed.

    Yeah, they have to have it on their original contract to do that. DH wanted to do that.. but someone at MEPS lost his paper work and instead of getting it fixed he just said screw it, since he knew he wanted to go back to school someday too.

    My dh stupidly got student loans to go to college WHILE he was enlisted (his XW talked him into it telling him they needed the money). Now, he tried to get them repaid and the people wherever told him they couldn't do that.
