GI Educational Programs

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs administers a variety of educational benefit programs. Many Veterans and active duty personnel can qualify for more than one program and there also are programs for qualified dependents. You can explore the many benefits of the GI Bill and other programs, often known as Chapters, through the links in this web section. 

EFSC's Military and Veterans Service Center experts can help you understand the choices, plus the VA provides free educational and vocational counseling to service members and veterans. For help determining which program best fits your particular needs, see Benefit Comparison Tools at the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs website. Current rates for all Education benefit programs are available. This information can be useful in helping you select a benefit program.

NOTE: Any person whose military service began on or after August 1, 2011 will only be able to utilize that service to qualify for one GI Bill. Such service may not be used to qualify for both Chapter 30 and 33.
