First of all, thank you for your sacrifice in serving our country. If you are a Veteran, family member or eligible service person looking to transition into a new career in tech, we can help.
Our immersive learning environment will prepare you with the technical skills to be job ready. The learning environment will be fast-paced similar to what you have been accustomed to in the military and we’ll also provide the hands-on mentoring throughout the program.
We are excited to be the start of your journey into a new and rewarding career in tech. Let us guide you with the process
of using your GI Bill® Educational Benefits at DevLeague.
Visit the VA website to learn more about the educational programs.
There is an annual cap to the GI Bill®. From Aug. 1, 2017 to July 31, 2018 a student may use up to $22,805.34. If you're currently taking classes and have already used part of your benefits for the year, please let us know.
If you plan to use another benefit besides the Post 9/11 GI Bill® Chapter 33, please contact us at email@example.com and we’ll walk you through the details.
A: Check out Operation Code, a national nonprofit that helps the military community transition into the tech sector. They provide mentors, scholarships to conferences, and job search help.
A: Unfortunately, we don’t have access to that information. To find out how many months of benefits you have left, you can call the VA Education Call Center at 1-888-442-4551. The call center is available 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., central time (Muskogee, OK).
A: When you apply for our program, let us know that you would like to use your GI Bill® benefits and our admissions teams will help you navigate through the process. Refer to the VA site to start the application for your education benefits.
Please make sure that you apply for our program and for your benefits at the same time. Each process can take a few weeks, so get them going. Don’t wait for one to be completed before you start the other. We require all GI Bill® documents three weeks prior to the class start date.
A: It usually takes two to three weeks to be approved by the VA, but it can take up to 30 days. You’ll receive a Certificate of Eligibility (CoE) in the mail and you can send that to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to our office at 2800 Woodlawn Dr. #138 Honolulu, HI, 96822 Attn: DevLeague GI Bill.
The Education Enrollment Status is available online (via ebenefits) and can be used instead of the CoE. We need something official that shows your months remaining of benefits and the benefit level (it will be up to 100%).
A: Since the GI Bill® has an annual cap at $22,805.34, your daily benefit is about $63.34 ($22,805.34 / 360 days).
When dividing this daily benefit into the cost of our program of $12,500: $12,500 / $63.34 = 197.3 days or 6.57 months of benefits will be used for the program.
For more details on the calculation.
A: We have a variety of funding options to help in case your GI Bill® benefits isn’t enough.
A: Our program is full time and you will qualify for the housing allowance (prorated if you have less than 100% of benefits). The housing allowance is $2,681/month but paid retroactively and can take up to 45 days before you start receiving those payments, so plan accordingly.
For more details on the housing allowance, please refer to the VA website.
