We honor the service of our military men and women and are grateful for the sacrifices
that they and their families make to protect the freedoms and security that we enjoy.
To currently-serving military and their dependents, veterans, and those who would
like to become officers in the U. S. Army, we want to make a quality, affordable education
Important Information Regarding Monthly Housing Payments:
As part of the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2017, also
known as the “Forever GI Bill (FGIB),” Section 107 of the law requires VA to calculate
monthly housing payments based on the location of the campus where a student attends
the majority of their classes. If you are a student Veteran, please keep in mind your
campus’s zip code may affect your payment amount. A “campus” may include internships,
externships, training, practicums, etc. VA is working with your School Certifying
Officials to implement this change and ensure you receive your monthly housing payment.
Students can expect to see changes in their monthly housing allowance after August
