I dont k.kw. I need to get on it after we pcs. I've heard differed things about the BAH you get from it. Some say to don't get if your married to an active duty service member, some say you can. I don't know. I hope you can, that would be freaking awesome when I start school.

I get the money every 1st of the month and a book stipend every semester on the 1st also. I got all mine today actually because I get paid early with USAA.

If you're the vet it doesn't matter your husbands status, it's your GI bill so you get your BAH for going to school.

honestly, I know spouses who have used their own and gotten BAH and others who have used their own and been denied.

Its e-5 with deps based upon the zipcode of the school. However if you are 100% online its a set bah amount that is like 600 and some odd dollars

Is this only certain majors? I'm getting a BA in Human Resource Management at Ashford University.
