Changes to the Post 9/11 GI Bill in October will allow eligible veterans to pay more for education and training programs, a Veterans Affairs Department official said Thursday.

Keith Wilson, VA’s director of education service, said programs not leading to college degrees are now eligible. AFPS reports flight programs, correspondence training, on-the-job and apprentice training also will be covered by the GI Bill.

The changes will go into effect Oct. 1.

VA previously announced housing allowance is now payable to students, except for those on active duty, enrolled solely in distance learning. Students on active duty will receive a stipend for books and supplies.

“VA is committed to ensuring veterans have the information and tools they need to succeed,” said Allison Hickey, undersecretary for benefits.

VA said more than 537,000 students have received over $11.5 billion in GI Bill benefits.
