VA Education Benefits: 

There will be no major impact to currently enrolled students' G.I. Bill® Benefits. Emergency legislation was passed by both houses of congress and signed into law by the President on March 21, 2020 which clarified how the Department of Veterans Affairs should treat in-person courses of study that convert to distance learning formats due to health-related situations and other national emergencies.
