How a GI Bill change means bigger housing stipends for some students | Military Times

Some student veterans will be eligible for larger housing stipends this semester.

Veterans Affairs officials will now recognize any “hybrid training” — classes that are a mix of online and in-class instruction — as part of the calculation for full housing stipend rates. “If a student is required to attend any amount of on-site classroom training, the class will be certified as ‘residence’ training,” officials said in a statement.

That’s very significant because students using GI Bill benefits for online-only are eligible for stipends of about $900 a month, whereas students in traditional in-person college classes generally receive twice that amount.
