G.I. BILL benefits

While enrolled in class, you qualify for a housing allowance, many Veterans are not aware that this is also possible while attending 100% online. In addition to that secret, many schools are not aware of the scheduling requirements for Veterans to maintain eligibility to receive benefits consistently.
