GI Bill FAQs
Does Galvanize Accept the GI Bill?
Yes we do!
How do I Use the GI Bill?
When you apply to our program, make sure to tell us that you’d like to use those benefits and our Admissions team will help you navigate. You’ll also need to apply to use your benefits with the VA. If you’ve used your GI Bill at another school, fill out the form to change schools (VA Form 1995) and designate “Galvanize”.
How Much Tuition is Covered by the GI Bill?
Your benefits will depend on a few different factors, so we encourage you to contact the VA for more information and to learn about your EES (Education Enrollment Status), which is a necessary part of the application process for Galvanize and should be submitted to us as soon as possible.
Will I Qualify for the Housing Allowance, and How Much is it?
Yes you will! Your EES (Education Enrollment Status) will have your housing allowance indicated on it.
How Long Does it Take for a Veteran or Military Spouse to get Approved by the VA?
It usually takes two to three weeks to be approved by the VA, but it can take up to 30 days (processing times run longer during Spring and Fall).
When you are ready, make sure that you apply for our program and for your benefits at the same time. Each process can take a few weeks, so start them as soon as you can. Don’t wait for one to be complete before you start the other.
How Many Months of Benefits do I Have Left?
Although we don’t have access to that information, you can find out how many months of benefits you have left by calling the VA Education Call Center at 1-888-442-4551. Don’t worry about getting stuck on hold—you can schedule a call back. The call center is available 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Central Time.
