Post 9/11 GI Bill Chapter 33

The Post-9/11 GI Bill, otherwise known as Chapter 33, is an education benefit program for individuals who served on active duty after Sept. 10, 2001, and their dependents.

Benefits include:

  • Tuition and fees paid by the VA directly to U of I student account. These include but are not limited to fees for diplomas, lab classes, course/web fees, and orientation. Fees do not include parking passes or any housing or meal plans.
  • Textbook Stipends – Based on number of credits taken, student can receive up to $1,000 per year, $41.67 per credit or $125 per three-credit class. Funds are direct deposit.
  • Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH)/Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) – Up to $1,344 per full month (100 percent eligibility). Funds are direct deposit.
  • Student Health Insurance (SHIP)
    SHIP is the university-offered insurance program for students not already covered by personal insurance. All students attending U of I must have health insurance. The bill covers this because it is a university requirement.

Vets.gov Account Requirement

All students must have a Vets.gov account.

The account allows students to:

  • Find benefits remaining (months and days)
  • Update mailing address
  • Set up or change direct deposit banking information
  • Verify payments made to the student and to the school for both educational and disability purposes
  • Download VA letters and personal documents

Make an appointment with Veterans Assistance work study assistants if you need help setting up your account.

Other Requirements

  • All students must complete the online GI Bill Certification Request form after registering for classes each semester.
  • All classes must fulfill a degree requirement as shown on your degree audit on VandalWeb.
  • Free electives aren't restricted, but students must concentrate on required courses
