HANCEVILLE – Wallace State Community College participates in the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP), designed to give up to 99,000 unemployed veterans who do not have any VA educational benefits an additional 12 months of Montgomery GI Bill benefits (($1,564/month) for training towards a high demand occupation.

The program will continue to accept applications until Sept. 30, 2013. Those who have already been accepted into the program should use their eligible funding by March 31, 2014, when the last payment can be made from the program. Those who have been issued a certificate of eligibility for the benefit but who do not plan to use it are asked to notify the VA so that it can be issued to another veteran.

Additional information about the program is available at http://www.benefits.va.gov/VOW/.

Wallace State’s new Lion Central, the one stop enrollment center located in the Bailey Center lobby, can provide assistance to veterans with registration and financial aid questions. For more information about Wallace State, visit wallacestate.edu.
