Tip of the Week

While on active duty, you may be tempted to use your GI Bill education benefits towards online education such programs offered as the University of Phoenix. While you can indeed use the GI Bill in such a way (provided the institution meets GI Bill requirements) it's a good idea to see what other education program your branch of the service offers to help offset your tuition costs.

The Air Force, for example, offers tuition assistance for online coursework. If you applied to the University of Phoenix using Air Force tuition assistance, you could be eligible for up to $250 per credit hour. Why use your MGIB when your service offers free money for college? There are a few caveats in any case--in the Air Force, you aren't allowed to pursue a degree lower than one you currently posess if you want tuition assistance. Check with your local education office to see what kinds of free money you are entitled to as an active duty member before using up your GI Bill education benefits.
