The concept of military online university is like the Internet 15 years ago, virtually unknown. But online education is going to be the wave of the future and maybe there would come a time when people couldn’t fathom how their predecessors survived going to school. Such is the process of evolution. Here’s another bit of good news: if you fit the criteria, you can secure GI benefits to further your education and increase your chance for a better life.

Applying for GI benefits

The military has always been considered a rite of passage for boys to become men. But as they grow older, the stress and trauma is too much for the families while the soldier is out on some exotic country exposed to constant dangers. And this is where a scholarship for them to pursue another path is very valuable. Although it was originally greeted with a hailstorm of criticisms, the “Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944” or more popularly known as the GI Bill of Rights has helped thousands of men and women change careers as they try to assimilate back to society. If you are a member of the Marines, Army, National Guard, Navy and the Air Force, you can take military university online courses while the government pays for your tuition.

The Post 9/11 GI Bill

If you have served the country for a total of three months on or after Sept. 11, 2001, or if you sustained an injury in the line of duty, you can secure benefits to continue your graduate or undergraduate education in a military online university of your choice (with the provision, of course, that it is accredited by the Veteran’s Office). You can also take vocational or technical courses under this program.

The Montgomery GI Bill

Under this program, you can take courses of up to 36 months. You can earn a college degree or take a certificate program, apprenticeship and correspondence course. The good thing about online courses is you can pursue your education at your own pace. This is ideal if you sustained some sort of service-related injury, for example.

If you are looking to change careers because you feel that military service is no longer conducive for your family’s well-being, you can attend military online university for free now. Typically, you have a 10-year window period to choose which school to choose after you are honourably discharged from service.
