The campus closure and transition to distance learning will not affect your GI Bill® or Basic Housing per VA recent changes in policy.
 
On March 21, the President signed Senate Bill S. 3503, which enables the VA to continue providing the same level of education benefits to students having to take courses online due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The bill allows for temporary continued payment of educational benefits even if the program has changed from resident training to online training. Make sure to enroll in at least one courses that was INTENDED to be taugh in Residence (in person) 

In addition, GI Bill® students will continue receiving the same monthly housing allowance (MHA) payments they received for resident training until Dec. 21, or until the school resumes in-person classes.
