Special COVID Education benefits to end JUNE 1

Wednesday, March 23, 2022 9:23 am

Dear GI BillĀ® Student,

On June 1, 2022, COVID-19 legislation that permits you to receive MHA at the resident (in person) rate, while taking courses converted to online training due to COVID-19 will end.

What does this mean?

This means that starting June 2, 2022, you will no longer receive the MHA at the resident (in person) rate for classes taken online. When enrolling for courses after that date or any subsequent term, you will need to enroll in approved resident (in person) classes to continue receiving your MHA at the resident rate. Otherwise, you will receive the online rate, which is half the national average. To find out more about your MHA rate, and to receive an estimate, please visit the GI Bill Comparison Tool.

Additionally, many Non-College Degree (NCD) programs are normally not approved for online training. These programs are only currently approved for online training because of the COVID-19 legislation set to end on June 1, 2022. If your program is one that is normally only approved for resident training and is approved for online training solely due to the COVID-19 legislation, you will need to return to resident (in person) training after June 1, 2022, if you want to continue receiving GI Bill benefits.

Next Steps

To prepare for the change and learn more about the expiration of the COVID-19 special rules, check in with your School Certifying Official and visit the COVID-19 Student FAQs.

Education Service
