Am I eligible for VA benefits?
You are eligible for benefits if you meet one of the following criteria:
1. Have served 2/3 of an enlistment contract, and paid into the active duty MGIB system for 1 year; or
2. Are a member of the Florida National Guard or Reserve component of an Armed Service with a contract greater than 6 years; or

If so you may be eligible for VA benefits.
For Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Ch 33) students and VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (Ch 31) students, our tuition policy complies with 38 USC 3679(e) which means Post 9/11 and Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment students will not be charged or otherwise penalized due to a delay in VA tuition and fee payments.
