7 Applying for Post 9/11 - Chapter 33 VA benefits is an irrevocable choice. Be sure you have explored all your options. Chapter 33 - Post 9/11 GI Bill VA benefits will pay Lanier Technical College directly for in-state tuition and mandatory fees at the percentage of benefits you qualify. The percentage you qualify at depends on how long you served after 09/11/2001. The VA will determine what you qualify for when you submit your application to them and after they process it, VA will send you a letter called Certificate of Eligibility. Lanier Tech MUST RECEIVE from you a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility in order for Lanier Tech to secure your schedule. Without this form on file, you will have to pay upfront for tuition & fees. You must request Transfer of Credit. Include all previous colleges & military training. (Please see Request for Transfer Credit form attached). If you are using HOPE along with Post 9/11 GI Bill, VA considers HOPE as the primary payer. VA will pay any balances that HOPE did not pay at the percentage you qualify, any balances after that are your responsibility. VA does not pay for late fees. VA does not pay for out-of-state tuition rates. If you are considered out of state, tuition is doubled. VA will only pay for the in-state tuition rate plus the fees. VA does not pay for remedial classes that are held online or hybrids Only lecture! VA does not pay for classes that are not listed on your program of study. The VA will pay your housing allowance and book allowance directly to you based on the Zip Code of the college at the pay rate of E5 with dependents. If you attend the Lanier Tech Forsyth campus use Zip code If you attend any other Lanier Tech Campus use Zip code Housing allowance: Prorated by the student s rate of pursuit. To get the maximum you must be full time (12 credit hours). To get the max at least one class must be a lecture class. (The class must be held all in a class room - not online or hybrid. MOST HYBRIDS DO NOT MEET VA s REQUIREMENTS. If you are taking all online classes, you will qualify for ½ the national average BAH for an E-5 with dependents. Book allowance: A maximum of $1000 per academic year, paid at $41.27 per credit hour. A maximum of 24 credit hours paid in one academic year. For example: If you qualify for benefits at 60% then you get 60% on the book allowance as well. The VA highly recommends students take very seriously the classes they register for and that they plan carefully. Dropping classes will mean that you will owe back money. Post 9/11 - Chapter 33 veterans wanting to transfer their benefits to dependents must apply with the Department of Defense. (Specific requirements apply.) Revised 10/03/11hb

8 This chart is what the VA is using to determine the percentage a veteran may qualify for benefits under the Post 9/11 Chapter 33 GI Bill. The following table applies to all categories: Post-9/11 Service Percentage of Maximum Amount Payable At least 36 months 100% At least 30 continuous days on active duty and discharged due to service-connected disability 100% At least 30 months, but less than 36 months 90% At least 24 months, but less than 30 months * 80% At least 18 months, but less than 24 months 70% At least 12 months, but less than 18 months 60% At least 06 months, but less than 12 months 50% At least 90 days, but less than 06 months 40% NOTE: Service of 90 days, but less than 24 months does not include entry level and skill training. Service of 24 months and greater does include entry level and skill training. * If you back out entry level and skill training and the aggregate days of service are still at least 730 days, then the entry level and skill training is included in the aggregate for determination of the level of benefit. If backing out entry level and skill training brings the person s service to less than 730 days, then it cannot be included in the aggregate for determination of the level of benefit. -The table above was copied from documentation provided by the VA office.
