Education Benefits

Post-9/11 GI Bill

The Post-9/11 GI Bill can be used for approved programs and provides up to 36 months of education benefits, generally payable for 15 years following release from active duty service.  Find out more about the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

It is also important to note that although Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits can be transferred to dependents, the service member needs to apply for the transfer while still serving on active duty.  Find out more about transferring Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.

Federal and state education benefits can be explained by school certifying officials located at each campus, by the state approving authority at the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) and by Tennessee Department of Veterans Services. 

We recommend starting the process by going through the Education Checklist.
