You can, but the only time you should ever use your GI Bill on AD is if you've completed your bachelor and are using it as part of top up for your masters.
If you use even one month of GI Bill you will be ineligible to use the yellow ribbon scholarships offered by schools whose tuition exceeds the GI Bill payment amounts.

SSG(P) (Join to see) I only recently discovered it as I was digging into it. You have to have your entire GI Bill to qualify. Your dependents can qualify for it too if you transferred your GI Bill, but only if you transfer the whole thing to one person.

That's good information to have because I have a partially used 32 GI bill, and I was under a completely different understanding.

I would not suggest using it as part of the top up for a masters degree. There are too many programs available to utilize without having to use the GI Bill on active duty.

Yes...but only recommend doing so if TA and FAFSA funds are exhausted

Agree with the MSG. There should be no reason to use any of the GI Bill if you have TA and other financial aid available, because at that point you're just wasting the resource.

I had Vietnam GI bill. Lost it had 10 years to use it. I went straight to GS for the 18 years. GI bill is crap. Why do you have to pay anything. Obama is crap and trump is suspect. Draft dodger.
