Correspondence training is a method of providing education for nonresident students who receive lessons and exercises through the mail, online, or some other device. Upon completion students return their work for grading. Students will have a certain amount of time to complete and return the lessons.
Although the participation requirements are the same for all GI Bill programs, the payment amount varies depending on the GI Bill program you are utilizing. Payment amounts are made quarterly after VA receives certification of lessons completed from the school.
For Post-9/11 GI Bill recipients, VA reimburses the lesser of the net actual costs for in-state tuition and fees assessed by the school for the program being pursued or the maximum amount allowed by law. View the current payment rates.
For all other GI Bill recipients, VA will reimburse 55 percent of the approved costs.
This assistance is not available for children training under the Dependents Educational Assistance program.
Apply for GI Bill benefits.
Keep receiving education and training benefits from VA by verifying your attendance.
