Does anybody know if the VA pays for distance learning at oversea colleges and universities? Before the Post 9/11 GI Bill, the VA did not pay for oversea schools at distance learning. However, I am wondering if the rule has changed since Post 9/11 GI Bill 2.0 was implemented. I am looking for the answer through Google, but could not find any information. I plan to put Lancaster University back to my Ph.D program because I thought 4 trips to Ft. Lauderdale (Nova Southeastern University) is almost the same 2 trips to Lancaster, UK (Lancaster University) annually.
