The Post 9/11 GI Bill pays generous benefits for part time students. For example:

Tuition and Fees
: Tuition benefits are the same for full-time and part-time students.

Living allowance
: Paid to students who are enrolled more than half time. A student enrolled one unit above exactly half time will qualify for a prorated monthly living allowance. For example a student is taking 7 credits at a school that consider 12 credits full time, that student will receive 60% of the normal living allowance rate.

Book Stipend: The payment will be $41.67 for every credit enrolled, but no more than $1,000 per academic year. (e.g., a student enrolled in 12 units will receive $500 for that academic term).
