When most people think of the GI Bill they think of college. That is because most people do use their GI Bill benefits to go to a traditional college. Over the years the GI Bill has expanded greatly and it's not just for college anymore.
The VA realizes that many people do not want to go to college, and they have developed programs that pay for many different types of training besides college. You can use your GI Bill for many different types of training including:
- College degree programs including Associate, Bachelor, and advanced degree programs
- Vocational/Technical Training including non-college degree programs
- On-the-job/Apprenticeship Training
- Licensing & Certification Reimbursement
