Summer Benefits

Recent legislation prevents the VA Education Benefits from paying for any breaks between school terms. The VA will pay for the Summer Session(s) you enroll in according to your Benefits Eligibility. To be certified for any Summer Enrollment, contact your School VA Clerk after enrolling in the course(s).
