Chapter 30 Active Duty

The Montgomery G.I. Bill Chapter 30 program provides up to 36 months of education benefits to service members on active duty or separated from the military with an honorable discharge. This benefit may be used for degree and certificate programs. Remedial, deficiency, and refresher courses may be approved under certain circumstances. Generally, benefits are payable for 10 years following your release from active duty. Benefit is paid directly to the student and the student is responsible for paying any tuition and fees to the school.

Application Process

Veterans applying for Chapter 30 should apply online thru the VONAPP system at www.gibill.va.gov. Applicants will be given the opportunity to upload and attach Copy 4 of their DD214 (Certificate of Discharge) and kicker paperwork. Please bring a copy of your completed application, DD214 and kicker to the Veteran Certifying Official in the Financial Aid Office at UW-Green Bay who will then certify your enrollment to the VA.

Payment Information

Students are required to verify their student attendance each month to receive their Chapter 30 payment. They can go online at www.gibill.va.gov or call 1-877-823-2378. Each payment you receive is for the previous month. For example, you will receive a check the first week in October for attendance during September. It takes eight to ten weeks for new students or transfer students to receive their initial payment. The VA does not pay for the breaks between semesters.
