The G.I. Bill allows veterans to gain access to — and better afford — education. Through this legislation, vets can receive financial support for tuition, books, supplies, and housing. Additionally, it also includes resources to receive vocational training that can be passed on to qualified family members.

And, if you qualify for the G.I. Bill, you also qualify for the National Testing Program.

What is it?

The National Testing Program is a VA benefit that pays veterans back for the cost of exam and testing fees. This benefit is available to veterans and service members who already qualify for the G.I. Bill. Exam and testing fees can include the cost to register, cost of specialized tests, and administrative fees.

How to get it?

In order to receive fee reimbursements, testing expenses will be charged to your G.I. Bill benefit package, which you can learn more about here.
