Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill

The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

Approved training under the Post-9/11 GI Bill includes graduate and undergraduate degrees, licensing and national testing programs, and tutorial assistance. All programs must be approved for GI Bill benefits. This benefit provides up to 36 months of education benefits, generally benefits are payable for 15 years following your release from active duty.

Some of the benefits the Post-9/11 GI Bill will pay may include:

  • Your full tuition & fees directly to the school for all public school in-state students.
  • For those attending UW-Green Bay as a non-resident out-of-state student, a program exists which may help to reimburse the difference. This program is called the "Yellow Ribbon Program". Please contact the Veteran Certifying Official in the Financial Aid office if you believe you are eligible for Yellow Ribbon as a non-resident student.
  • A monthly housing allowance (MHA) based upon the School zip code
  • An annual books & supplies stipend
  • A one-time rural benefit payment

Application Process

Veterans applying for Chapter 33 should apply 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) paperwork. Please bring a copy of your completed application and DD214 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 NOT required to verify their student attendance each month to receive their Chapter 33 payment. Payments are processed automatically. 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 six to ten weeks for new students or transfer students to receive their initial payment. The VA no longer pays for the breaks between semesters.
