Default Need help navigating GI bill

In San Diego!
Does anyone know where I can go to ask question about chap 33 GI bill. My classes are online and there is no one that seems to be able to help.

Is there a brick and mortar associated with your online classes? If so, they should have a VA rep. Maybe a veterans club of sorts on campus? They probably have resources as well.

Ask for VA rep... every campus should have one.

My issue is complicated. If just take online classes bah is $714 (hard to live on) if I take another class with the online I qualify for the full San Diego Bah. The problem is the online class will only approve classes that specifically match them. I thought I could take a lower level math and build up but was told no.
Only college algebra or higher, but I'm not at that level. My online school is the gate keeper for all the classes and I'm stuck.
I've though of dual degrees but not sure how to proceed

check to see if the school holds accredidation, do your homework first, a lot of online schools are diploma mills and your completion certificate is useless. Check with the US Department of Education. You can email me if you like, wbrenner21@yahoo.com. Also check www.bppe.com

Enroll ft online, take 1 elective class on campus at JC = full BAH payment. This way, you maintain a ft student status and attend a campus course within the SD area.

Feel free to shoot me a pm if you want.

Nate,
My problem is I've fullfiled most of my electives toward my degree. I have 12 classes to completion 10 must be done online and 2 I can do locally.
I'm wondering if I can do duel majors to give me more local options?

I have checked int accreditation and it is nationally accredited vice the favored regional accreditation, but it is a source for my goal which is to be a CSP or certified safety professional. A BS in Occupational Safety and Health at a brick and mortar college is hard to find. I checked with the CSP site http://www.bcsp.org/ and they accept this degree to take the exam for certififcation.

Here I am again. Of the classes I registered for through school VA is only recognizing one. The school sent me confirmation they sent all classes to VA and a copy of the receipt. The day they sent it I got a confirmation email from Va that my status has changed and is pending. This was a month ago. Classes start today. Should I blindly take the classes and hope it gets straightened out until the school wants payment, or drop all classes and postpone my education and get a job til this blows over?
I tried the numbers but due to gov shut down all phones are off. I am not a person who gives up easy but wtf. If I proceed and they pay partial my only recourse is appeal and that from what I've found from disability is years of delay.
