  14. Chytla,
    I to am active duty AF stationed in Montana. I have been trying to get a school paid for as well. We all came in and paid for the GI Bill. However, I have not found a "credited" course out there that the AF will accept. They do however pay for very little. They will only give you a % of how long the class is compared to a semester. I would do as Bill Dischman stated earlier and call David Strong. I did this and he explained everything to me in depth a few months ago. He also said they have been fighting for these "high volume, short term" schools to be paid for us as many people have been asking about this and many others. However he said don't hold your breathe because it has been five years with no outcome yet. Good luck and if you find anything different let me know.

    Even though "they have been fighting for these "high volume, short term" schools to be paid for"
    they actually DO pay for them. We have GI Bill and VA Students in almost every class anymore.
    You have to realize that this is the government your dealing with and of course they seem to make it as hard as possible. Instead of asking which school they are willing to pay for, pick the one you want to attend and then get them and David Strong to help you make it happen.
