Q: How do I use my GI Bill® at DevLeague?
A: When you apply for our program, let us know that you would like to use your GI Bill® benefits and our admissions teams will help you navigate through the process. Refer to the VA site to start the application for your education benefits.
Please make sure that you apply for our program and for your benefits at the same time. Each process can take a few weeks, so get them going. Don’t wait for one to be completed before you start the other. We require all GI Bill® documents three weeks prior to the class start date.
Q: How much tuition is covered by the GI Bill®?
A: It will depend on which VA Education Benefit you will be using. If you are planning to use the Post 9/11 GI Bill® Chapter 33 benefits, the GI Bill® will cover 100 percent of the course (provided that you have 100 percent of the Post 9/11 GI Bill®—if not, it’s the prorated percent).
There is an annual cap to the GI Bill®. From Aug. 1, 2020 to July 31, 2021 a student may use up to $25,162.14. If you’re currently taking classes and have already used part of your benefits for the year, please let us know.

If you plan to use another benefit besides the Post 9/11 GI Bill® Chapter 33, please contact us at email@example.com and we’ll walk you through the details.
Q: How much of my GI Bill® benefits will be allocated to the program?
A: The GI Bill® has an annual cap at $25,162.14. That’s a daily rate cap of $68.94 per day.
The Full Stack Developer and Cybersecurity tracks are net $12,500 for tuition (that’s $15,000 minus $2500 DevLeague Kingsland Scholarship).
The Full Stack Developer and Cybersecurity tracks are:
Months: 8.25 months; thus tuition is $1,515.15 per month
Weeks: 33 weeks; thus tuition is $378.79 per week
Days: 231 calendar days, thus tuition is $54.11 per day
Q: What if I don’t have enough GI Bill® benefits to pay for classes?
A: We have a variety of funding options to help in case your GI Bill® benefits isn’t enough.
Q: Will I qualify for the housing allowance and how much is it?
A: Your Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) is generally the same as the military Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) for an E-5 with dependents. Your MHA is based on the ZIP code for your school. For more details on the housing allowance, please refer to the VA website.
Q: How long does it take to get approved by the VA?
A: It usually takes two to three weeks to be approved by the VA, but it can take up to 30 days. You’ll receive a Certificate of Eligibility (CoE) in the mail and you can send that to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to our office at 307a Kamani St. Honolulu, HI, 96813 Attn: DevLeague GI Bill®.
The Education Enrollment Status is available online (via ebenefits) and can be used instead of the CoE. We need something official that shows your months remaining of benefits and the benefit level (it will be up to 100%).
Q: Can DevLeague tell me how many months of benefits I have left?
A: Unfortunately, we don’t have access to that information. To find out how many months of benefits you have left, you can call the VA Education Call Center at 1-888-442-4551. The call center is available 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., central time (Muskogee, OK).
Q: Can I use my Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Benefits?
A: Yes. According to Public Law 115-407 sections 103 and 104, any individual who is entitled to educational assistance under chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, or chapter 33, Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits is permitted to attend or participate in the course of education during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides to the educational institution a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under chapter 31 or 33 (a “certificate of eligibility” can also include a “Statement of Benefits” obtained from the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) website – eBenefits, or a VAF 28-1905 form for chapter 31 authorization purposes) and ending on the earlier of the following dates:
- The date on which payment from VA is made to the institution.
- 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certificate of eligibility.
Q: Are there any penalties (i.e. late fees, denial of access to class) if there is a delay in payment from the VA?
A: No. DevLeague will not impose any penalties, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under chapter 31 or 33.
Q: Are there other resources for the military community?
A: Check out Operation Code, a national nonprofit that helps the military community transition into the tech sector. They provide mentors, scholarships to conferences, and job search help.
