Student Credit Status

For students using Post 9/11 (CH 33) benefits, you must be enrolled in at least seven credits (four credits in Summer) to receive Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH). For most students this means you’ll need to be enrolled in at least two courses in Fall, Winter, and Spring.

If you are enrolled in all online courses, you will receive one half of the national average BAH.

See the GI Bill Comparison Tool for specific dollar amounts.
