The statements below are reflective of VA Educational Benefits Enrollment
Undergraduate, Graduate, and Doctoral Students
In order to be eligible for the BAH you must be enrolled more than half time. Summer I and Summer II are considered separate terms and enrollment is certified based on the course(s) start and end dates.
If you register for 6 credits for Summer I you will be considered full time for Summer I only.
If you register for only 3 credits for either term, you will be considered half time and will not receive the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH).
The VA will not pay BAH for the break in between the terms.
Exceptions to the Training Time/Credits to be considered full time:
Anesthesiology- 1 credit
Podiatry- 5 credits
PACE Undergraduate and Graduate Students
If you register for only online courses the VA will pay the online rate and not the regular BAH rate. For 2016-2017 the rate is $805.50/month.
If you register for one online and one classroom course you will receive the full BAH.
If you register for 3 credits, you will be considered half time and will not receive the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH).
