Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill

Recipients can receive up to 36 months of benefits. Recipients who combine this benefit with one or more other Chapter Benefits can receive up to 48 months of total benefits. A recipient’s benefit amount is affected by their rate of pursuit (number of credit hours being taken divided by the number of credit hours considered to be full-time). Click here (Enrollment Status Requirements ) to view the VA Enrollment Requirements.

The delimiting date for this benefit is 10 years from the last period of qualifying active duty service (at least 90 days in length). For veterans, all payments are made directly to the student, not to the school. For Active Duty Service Members, tuition and fee payments are made directly from the VA to UHCL. Benefits are paid in arrears (after the training period). For example, a student receives payment for August at the beginning of September.

Payments are prorated for any partial months of attendance (ex. August and December). Payment amounts do not include enrollment break periods (ex. Winter and Summer break). The monthly benefit amount paid is based on the length of service, category, and DoD put “Kickers” into the MGIB Fund (if applicable).
