Academic Course Load
The VA pays based on academic load. The following shows the relationship between semester
hours and academic load in a normal full semester:
The Vertical Column shows the credit hours, the horizontal shows the number of weeks for the course. To see if you are full time, match up the number of weeks for the course and how many hours you are registered for to see if you are full time. The percentage denotes the percentage you will receive from your GI Bill®
Note: Ch.33 Post 9/11—if student is taking less than half time, no BAH will be paid.
