Beginning on August 1, 2021, eligible GI Bill students, in their last term, will have the option to take additional classes to bring their course load to full-time and receive a full-time monthly housing allowance.

This new "round out" rule can be applied in your last term if you are taking classes that are approved for your program of education. Classes approved for a program of education means those that can be used to satisfy the graduation requirements of the program as specified in the curriculum. Classes that have been previously completed cannot be used to round out the student’s course load.

VA encourages students to work with their School Certifying Official to plan out their course load. For questions or assistance with your GI Bill benefits, please contact the Education Call Center at 888-442-4551 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Central Time, Monday through Friday.

Not only does Alfonso support the SMVF Community by providing info about their education benefits but he is also volunteering his time being on the committee for the 9/11 Heroes Run El Paso.

Meet your El Paso 9/11 Heroes Run Committee Members:

Hello, my name is Alfonso, and I serve as the Photography Manager for the El Paso 9/11 Heros Run. I currently serve as an Infantry Officer in the Army National Guard/Military Enrollment Counselor with Grand Canyon University. I was first introduced to the Travis Manion Foundation for the 2019 Heros run. As a local El Pasoan, this is just another way to give back to my local community and our military family. I am thrilled to be a part of this year's race committee.

After you file your disability benefits claim, VA may ask Veterans to have a claim exam, otherwise known as a compensation and pension, or C&P, exam. This exam will help VA rate your disability.

There are several "good to know" things to help prepare you for your claim exam that may answer some of your questions. Visit: https://www.va.gov/disability/va-claim-exam/
