Can I use the Post-9/11 GI Bill while on active duty?
You can use the Post-9/11 GI Bill on active duty provided you have completed at least 90 days of service (excluding basic entry level & skill training). Your tuition will be paid based on how long you have served. However, the tuition payment cannot exceed the amount not paid by military tuition assistance and/or the total amount of tuition & fees.
You will not receive the housing allowance portion of the GI Bill or the book and supplies stipend, while on active duty.
