Post-9/11 GI Bill Students
For Post 9/11 GI Bill Students - Important Information Regarding the Monthly Housing Allowance (BAH)
The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has designated SUNY Empire State College as a distance learning institution, which means that Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) eligible students attending SUNY Empire State College will receive the online training housing allowance, rather than the in-resident housing allowance (referred to as the BAH). For the most current housing allowance information, look on the VA Benefits website for more information.
Students wishing to receive the in-resident housing allowance while enrolled at SUNY Empire State College can cross-register for a course at a school that meets the in-resident housing allowance requirements of the Department of Veteran Affairs. For more information about cross-registration, contact the Office of Veteran and Military Education (OVME) at: Military.firstname.lastname@example.org or Kimberly Durant (Student Accounts) at 518-587-2100, ext 2334.
