GI Bill® FAQ

What if my eligibility doesn’t meet the 100% benefit level?

If you’re not eligible at the 100% level, your percentage will be distributed proportionally. For example, an individual with 40% benefit eligibility could receive 40% of the tuition benefit, 40% of the monthly housing allowance, and at most a $400 stipend for books and supplies.

What if my remaining benefits don’t cover the full cost of tuition and fees?

Our admissions team can guide you through additional financing options if you’re paying an amount not covered by your GI Bill® benefit.

Note: Exhausting your benefits will impact your housing allowance.

How much tuition is covered by the GI Bill®?

Your benefits will depend on your eligibility. Contact the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to learn about your education benefits eligibility.

For non-college degree programs based on clock hours, GI Bill® usage depends on the cost of tuition which is billed as a percentage of the annual cap. The VA’s calculator takes the annual cap and divides it by the number of days in the year to determine a daily cost of GI Bill® benefits.

For non-degree schools like Divergence Academy, the annual cap is $24,477 from August 1, 2021–July 31, 2022. This translates to the VA equating $67.99 per one day of GI Bill® education benefits.

To calculate the cost of your GI Bill® for your course of choice, the VA divides the total tuition costs by the daily costs ($67.99) to determine how many days a GI Bill® education benefit uses up.

Note: The VA uses a 30-day month formula regardless of how many days are in the current month.

Will I qualify for and receive a housing allowance?

If you use your GI Bill® for an eligible program, you’ll receive a monthly housing allowance (MHA). This is based on the campus zip code where you’re enrolled. You’ll pay on the first day of the month for the month prior (e.g., March 1 if you started classes February 5). However, if you start classes later (e.g., after March 16), your housing allowance may be delayed.

Note: Active duty service members will not receive MHA. Recently discharged veterans must submit the DD Form 214 (Member Copy 4) to confirm their release date from the military before being paid an allowance. GI Bill® students are eligible for an MHA the day after their release.
