Paying for College With the Military GI Bill

If I'm in the National Guard, Can I Get a Housing Allowance?

Q: I'm curious about BAH and GI Bill. What will I receive if enrolled in college full time? The college VA Office told me I would get $333/month from GI Bill (I am in the old one I believe? 1607?) I am in the Guard, 1 year of service, no deployment. I have heard mixed statements about also receiving BAH in the amount of E5 w/dependents based on the zip code of my school? If that is correct, what paperwork, and to whom do I submit it to? Any help would be great! I want to get a degree prior to my 2013 deployment date, but sure can't live on only $300/month.

Will Dropping a Class Affect My Post 9/11 GI Bill Army Benefits Housing Allowance?

Q: Hi, I'm currently enrolled full-time at the University of Alabama, and before I drop a course that could really hurt my GPA, I would like to know if I drop one course will that impact my BAH for the entire semester? I would also like to know why we receive partial BAH depending on the start of classes? The logic behind BAH is depending on the location you live in while in school, but most leases start the 1st of the month, so why doesn't BAH cover the full month of "move-in" and "move-out"?

Can You Tell Me How Much My Post 9/11 GI Bill Housing Allowance Would Be?

Q: Good afternoon, I'm terribly sorry to bother you as I know you're very busy. My question is just as crazy as everyone else's. Recently, I found out about this new Post 9/11 GI Bill and I'm very interested in pursuing a degree with this. Is there a way to find out how much the housing allowance portion will be that is paid to the veteran? Once again, thank you for your time and consideration.
