- Special Vocational Training (Chapter 31): Provides tuition, books, fees, and housing assistance to qualified applicants with a 20% or higher VA disability rating.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33)
If you have completed at least 90 days of aggregate military service or were discharged with a service-related disability after 30 days since September 10, 2001, you may be eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill®. Under this revised GI Bill®, tuition and fee expenses are paid directly to the school, and students receive an additional stipend for books, supplies, and housing. If students are eligible for both the Montgomery GI Bill® and the Post 9/11 GI Bill®, they must choose which one to use. Speak with an MTI financial advisor to weigh which option would be the best fit for you.

MTI College Earns 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School Designation
MTI College has earned the 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School designation. Institutions earning the Military Friendly® School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. More than 1,000 schools participated in the 2020-2021 survey with 695 earning the designation.
The 2020-2021 Military Friendly® Schools list will be published in the May issue of G.I. Jobs magazine and can be found at www.militaryfriendly.com. Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Final ratings were determined by combining the institution’s survey scores with the assessment of the institution’s ability to meet thresholds for Student Retention, Graduation, Job Placement, Loan Repayment, Persistence (Degree Advancement or Transfer) and Loan Default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.
Military Friendly’s National Director Josh Rosen stated, “Our ability to apply a clear, consistent standard to colleges creates a competitive atmosphere that encourages colleges to invest in programs to provide educational outcomes that are better for the Military Community as a whole.”
