Types of Benefits

There are different types of veterans benefits, including programs for veterans or their dependents. Compare VA education benefit programs below

Veteran Readiness and Employment (Chapter 31)

If you have a service-connected disability that limits your ability to work or prevents you from working, Veteran Readiness and Employment (formerly called Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment) can help. This program—also known as Chapter 31 or VR&E—helps you explore employment options and address education or training needs. In some cases, your family members may also qualify for certain benefits.

Visit the Veteran Readiness and Employment (VR&E) website.

Post-9/11 GI Bill® , Chapter 33

If you are a dependent of a veteran who is entitled to education benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, the veteran must transfer this eligibility to their dependent.  The dependent must then make application with the Veterans Administration(VA) to use these benefits.  If the application is approved, the student will receive a Certificate of Eligibility from the VA.  Randolph College will require a copy of this Certificate of Eligibility in order to certify the student’s enrollment with the VA.

Chapter 33 benefits pay directly to the school. Funds are applied to the student’s financial aid offer in addition to other merit aid, state aid, federal grants, and outside scholarships, (not to exceed the cost of attendance). Chapter 33 benefits pay up to  $26,381.37 per academic year for tuition for 2022-2023.

Please contact the School Certifying Official at Randolph  to find out if you will qualify for additional scholarship through the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Chapter 35 benefits for Dependents and Survivors
