Military and Veterans Education BenefitsVeterans education benefits allow eligible military personnel to earn a degree online at very low-cost. Some vets can even earn a free degree by taking accredited online courses.

However, not all veterans education benefits are equal. Benefits vary, depending on where veterans live, and where they choose to attend school.  Special rules apply to distance learning programs as opposed to campus degrees.

Some veterans may be better off using the old Montgomery GI Bill (MGI bill), while others may receive more benefits using the newer, Post-9/11 GI Bill, which went into effect in 2009.
