Post-9/11 GI Bill® Students

For Post 9/11 GI Bill® Students - Important Information Regarding the Monthly Housing Allowance (BAH)

The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) has designated Empire State University as a distance learning institution, which means that Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) eligible students attending Empire State University will receive the online training housing allowance, rather than the in-resident housing allowance (referred to as the BAH). For the most current housing allowance information, look on the VA Benefits website for more information.

Students wishing to receive the in-resident housing allowance while enrolled at Empire State University can cross-register for a course at a school that meets the in-resident housing allowance requirements of the Department of Veteran Affairs. For more information about cross-registration, contact the Office of Veteran and Military Education (OVME) at: or Kimberly Durant (Student Accounts) at 518-587-2100, ext 2334.
