Physical Therapist GI Bill Benefits and Eligibility
The U.S. Armed Forces is phenomenal at helping its officers to receive an education during and after their service. If you decide to take classes that are related to your career specialty in the military, your Armed Forces branch will pay for all of your expenses that are related to your education. The military will pay for 75 percent of your school expenses even if they are not related.
Once you serve for at least two years in the Armed Forces, you will be eligible for the GI Bill. You will also be eligible when you retire. From the time that you retire from the Armed Forces, you will be able to use the bill for ten years to begin or advance your career in physical therapy.
It’s also possible that you may have the luxury of skipping some physical therapy courses while you are serving in the military through the DANTES (Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support) program.
