Eleven Fifty Accepts the GI Bill®
Transitioning from active duty into civilian life is a major change for veterans. But for GI Bill recipients, embarking on a new career path is easier than you may think. Eleven Fifty Academy allows former service members to learn to code or become a cybersecurity professional in a matter of months, helping veterans hit the ground running after leaving active duty.
For eligible veterans or military spouses, the GI Bill can cover the full cost of tuition for a coding or cybersecurity bootcamp plus a stipend for housing and books for veterans. Our immersive IT training for veterans will help you set your sights on a high-paying, exciting job after transitioning back into civilian life.
Members from all branches of the military who meet the GI Bill requirements are eligible for funding at Eleven Fifty Academy.
The GI Bill allows former service members to pursue a career in the tech industry through accelerated coding bootcamps. As part of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, the benefit may cover full course fees for the bootcamp of your choosing. Each course offers immersive coding courses for military veterans interested in transitioning into tech careers such as web development and software development.

Both the software development and web development courses are deep dive coding bootcamps. HTML and CSS will be instrumental building blocks as you dig into the basics of coding. In addition, you’ll learn how to create web pages and full-stack applications using industry-standard technologies throughout our training program.
Beyond HTML, our code immersives teach new coders how to write in Java and other commonly used programming languages. The software and web development bootcamps move beyond the basics quickly, taking students through the foundation of full-stack applications.
Cybersecurity bootcamp students will learn vital foundational concepts about digital security. They will work toward the industry-recognized certification necessary for security analysts. Along with learning important fundamentals, veterans enrolled in this course will have hands-on experience with the tools used to prevent, monitor, and stop real-world cyber attacks.
Your VA benefits will allow you to alter your career path completely. Eleven Fifty will fast-track you into the tech industry within months of enrolling.
As a former service member, you may find a career in coding rewarding in terms of career advancement and satisfaction. Learning to code demands discipline and problem-solving skills—key traits needed for serving in the military.
For many veterans, coding is a natural fit. From one bootcamp to another, Eleven Fifty will help you succeed within and beyond our programs.
While some coders may tell you that you can learn on your own, it’s far more effective to accelerate your learning and build your portfolio with guidance and support from Eleven Fifty’s cohort of instructors and career partners. Our full-time bootcamps help former service members quickly learn about coding languages, full-stack applications, and cybersecurity systems.
A coding background is useful for many careers and will open up several possible career paths for you upon graduation. New grads can work as a junior web developer or try out freelancing for a while to determine what type of programmer you want to be. You can work in virtually any industry from healthcare to finance to entertainment.
One thing to remember is that while coding bootcamps are not accredited, the training will help you get a job in tech. Employers today recognize the value of a bootcamp education, and Eleven Fifty Academy is well respected in the industry.
No need to move to Silicon Valley, New York City, or Seattle. Our online full-time classes now allow students to learn from anywhere, so you can become a coder regardless of your location. So if you’re in Bloomington, Cleveland, Columbus, Fort Wayne, Evansville, or anywhere else in the U.S., you are eligible!
