Presentation by Kenith Scott, UH Manoa Nursing Student Veteran Advisor
The Post 9/11 GI Bill was passed in 2008 and is currently the most utilized VA education benefit. Many students using the post 9/11 GI Bill do not understand how the benefit works, which could lead them to be frustrated with VA certifying officials, academic advisors, their university, and the Department of Veteran Affairs. Understanding how the benefit works will save you time, money, and unnecessary stress. How does the benefit work? Where does your paper work go? And, who is eligible? These are just some of the questions that I will go over to help you become a GI BILL NINJA.
