All Bridger Institute programs qualify for tuition payment under the Post 9/11 GI Bill® Benefits. If you wish to use your benefits to enroll in one of our programs, you will need to follow the process outlined by the VA. First check with us as to the availability of the Bridger Institute course that you wish to enroll in.

 If you haven’t already done so, you will need to apply to the VA for your GI Bill® benefits. You can do this by going online to www.gibill.va.gov and follow the links under Education on how to apply for benefits (form 22-1990).

Once you receive notification that you are eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, complete the Bridger Institute enrollment form of the school that you wish to attend and send it to us.

Once we receive your enrollment form, we will complete VA form 22-1999, which will certify you to the VA as a student in our program. Under the rules for Chapter 33, Post 9/11, the school will be paid tuition fees directly through an EFT to its bank at the beginning of the course. Housing and books/supplies stipend will be paid directly to you one month after the beginning of the course.
