Chapter 35-Survivors' and Dependents' Educational Assistance Program (DEA) DEA provides education and training opportunities to eligible dependents of veterans who are permanently and totally disabled due to a service-related condition, or who died while on active duty or as a result of a service related condition.

This benefit may be used for degree and certificate programs, flight training, apprenticeship/on-the-job training and correspondence courses.

Veterans Educational Assistance Program (VEAP)

Your contributions are matched on a $2 for $1 basis by the Government.

Chapter 31-Vocational Rehabilitation
The Vocational Rehabilitation program is for service-disabled veterans who require further education to attain suitable, stable employment. This program may provide vocational and other training services and assistance including tutorial assistance, tuition, books, fees, supplies, handling charges, licensing fees and equipment and other training materials necessary.

 

Satisfactory Progress/Probation
A student receiving VA benefits needs to understand his college's policy regarding satisfactory progress and academic probation (found in the college catalog). A VA student placed on probation has a maximum of two consecutive semesters to return to good standing. Failure to return to good standing within two semesters will make the student ineligible for VA educational benefits.

The student may regain his eligibility for VA benefits for future terms under one of two conditions: (I.) a return to good standing in the college, or (2.) a request for resumption of VA educational benefits is submitted to the VA claiming mitigating circumstances and the VA reinstates benefits based on evidence supporting the student's claim.
