Using Your GI Bill Benefits to Attend NPS

NPS has been approved to process certification of GI Bill Benefits for military veterans.  This ONLY includes books and housing allowance, depending on the educational program you are certified for.

Important note: While in attendance for a degree program, NO Active duty student is eligible to use their Chapter 30 educational benefits.  In addition as per Title 10 law, legislation prohibits NPS from receiving tuition and fees from ALL educational programs qualified through the VA.  This means, NPS tuition & fees are NOT covered by your benefit.  Tuition & Fees must be covered by another funding source.  For further information on tuition and fees please contact

Once enrolled and certified for use of your benefit, the entitlement (housing & book stipend) may take 9-12 weeks for payment.  Any issues involving calculation must be directed to the VA at  or 1-888-442-4551. 

Please contact the VA Representative via or at (831) 656-2291 for further guidance and processing of these benefits.
