    how?

    Advertisements
    i have 2 friends(spouses, not in the military themselves) who are getting their schooling paid for by the military...HOW?!
    i didnt think the GI Bill was even transferable until August(could be wrong about that) and even with it being transferable, doesnt the military member have to have atleast 6 yrs in and sign for another 4? Like i said i could be way off. But how are they getting their school paid for by the military??

    They could be doing the CAA program?!?

    Have you asked your friends how they're able to receive free tuition?!? There could be a number of things that would qualify one to receive free college tuition...

    I know that they are supposed to bring back the spouses education act this year. How long have they been going to college? Is it here? If it has been long enough they could have started when the education act was first put into place (it was cancelled but it's coming back)


    If you find out though, please let me know!!! I wanna go back to college so bad!

    There are also various groups/organizations that give out scholarships to military spouses and kids.
