Use Your GI Bill

Want to use your GI bill to train online to be a freight broker…or for another career? We are proud to be approved by the Department of Rehabilitative Services to train vets for a new career. Our course and others are offered through 400 colleges across the country.

Our online partner, Gaitlin Education recently received a letter from one of our honorable veterans asking if he could use his GI Bill to for online education. Here is the (edited) answer to his letter with lots of links that should be helpful to many:

Hello Mr. Campbell,

Thank you for your request to use GI Bill towards a GES online program. One of our partners, Excelsior College, has several Gatlin Education programs (including Freight Brokering) approved for GI Bill benefits, and I am sure they would be more than willing to help you with the benefit process… When using the GI Bill benefit, Excelsior has two options of fulltime attendance and half-time attendance. The administrators at the campus will provide you with the information needed to process your GI Bill. Thank you for your patience, and please do not hesitate to contact me again if you do not find what you are looking for.

Your requested program’s website is:

Freight Broker-Agent Training

Your favorite client – an up-and-coming fashion designer in New York City – needs to have a large order of samples in Los Angeles by Friday. She’s trusting that you’ll find the right carrier and meet her deadline; and you will. Matching shippers and carriers is what the freight broker business is all about. Adding great customer service? That’s what you’re all about.

According to Entrepreneur Magazine, the Freight Broker business is one of the top home businesses to own. It requires little upfront investment – all you need is a computer, telephone, and fax machine – and you have the potential for earning a six-figure income.

The school’s website is :

For Gatlin Education Services loan and payment plan information view or for information on our courses, please view or call our admissions team at 817-870-2870 for assistance.

The administrators’ names are: Mr. Walsh, D. and Ms. Cooper, D.

Thank you for your interest.

Moving forward,

Jeff Roach
