Other Benefits Programs:
- Transfer of Post-9/11 GI Bill Benefits to Dependents (TEB): Service members enrolled in the Post-9/11 GI Bill® Program may be able to transfer unused educational benefits to their spouses or children.
- Tuition Assistance Top Up: Using Top-Up benefits may be an option for individuals who plan to use tuition assistance (TA) to complete a degree program while on active duty. Top-up can be helpful for just taking a few courses with TA while on active duty; then individuals can save most of their GI Bill benefits for after service to complete an education program.
- Tuition Assistance: All Service members utilizing tuition assistance should speak with their Educational Services Officers (ESO) or counselor within their military service prior to enrolling at Indiana State University or any institution of higher education. Whereas military funding is limited, it is important for all service members to use all their resources in making any educational decision.
