Considering the Financial Aid Option top of page

You may want to consider applying for financial aid if either your benefits do not cover the cost of tuition up-front, such as with the Montgomery GI Bill, or if you know only part of the cost of tuition will be covered, for example: Post-9/11 GI Bill under the 100% benefit level.
