I read that there is a requirement that G.I. Bill benefits must be used at institutions offering at least a two-year degree, but that this policy is being reconsidered. Is that correct?

No. Eligible veterans and service members long have received benefits for certain non-degree courses, such as studies geared toward a certificate program. What is being considered in Congress would provide some new degree-granting institutions relief from the requirement they be in operation for two years before they can be approved for VA training. You may want to discuss your education or training goals and the status of your eligibility with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) regional office in your area at (800) 827-1000.
