VA Education Benefits
The TEMPLE Annapolis: Now Offering VA Educational Benefits!
We are proud to announce we offer VA Educational Benefits! This basically means we can offer the amazing women and men of our armed services, along with members of their families, the opportunity to attend our institution. We are very proud of this accomplishment and already have future professionals taking advantage of this opportunity.
Military Education Assistance
Tuition assistance available. Specific eligibility criteria, assistance coverage, and application processing differ from service to service, so check to see how your education is covered in your branch’s Tuition Assistance program.
Veteran’s Education Benefits: Ch 30, 31, 35, 1606, 1607
Under these programs, benefits are typically paid to students instead of to institutions, and the amount of assistance will depend on how many units students are enrolled in.
- Montgomery GI Bill (Chapter 30): Provides up to 36 months of education benefits.
- Special Vocational Training (Chapter 31): Provides tuition, books, fees, and housing assistance to qualified applicants with a 20% or higher VA disability rating.
- Survivors and Dependents Educational Assistance Program (Chapter 35): Provides up to 45 months of education benefits to eligible dependents (son, daughter, spouse) of veterans.
- Selected Reserve (Chapter 1606): Provides Montgomery GI Bill benefits to members of the Selected Reserve (Army Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Navy Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Coast Guard Reserve, Army National Guard, Air National Guard).
- Reserve Educational Assistance Program (Chapter 1607): Provides reservists who were activated for at least 90 days with benefits or increased benefits.
Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33)
If you have completed at least 90 days of aggregate military service or were discharged with a service-related disability after 30 days since September 10, 2001, you may be eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Under this revised GI Bill, tuition and fee expenses are paid directly to the school, and students receive an additional stipend for books, supplies, and housing. If students are eligible for both the Montgomery GI Bill and the Post 9/11 GI Bill, they must choose which one to use. Speak with an Temple financial advisor to weigh which option would be the best fit for you.
