Other Programs To Offer Assistance And Financing

US Department of Veterans Affairs GI Bill®

The Esthetic Institute is approved to offer GI Bill® educational benefits by the Virginia State Approving Agency (SAA). The Esthetic Institute is approved to accept any covered individual who is entitled to educational assistance under chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, or chapter 33, Post-9/11 GI Bill®  benefits. Students using these benefits are required to submit a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance with their application for admission. A “certificate of eligibility” can also include a “Statement of Benefits” obtained from the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) website – eBenefits, or a VAF 28-1905 form for chapter 31 authorization purposes. If there is a difference between the amount of the student’s financial obligation and the amount of the VA education benefit disbursement, the student will be responsible for that additional payment.

The Department of Veterans Affairs is issuing advance educational benefit payments to Veteran-students. For further information click on the link above. VA GI Bill®  Pamphlet

Post-9/11 GI Bill Transferability

While the Post-9/11 GI Bill®  offers a very generous post-service education benefit, a special provision of the program allows career service members the opportunity to share their education benefits with immediate family members. Allowing career service members to transfer their GI Bill® benefits to family members has long been one of the most requested items among military family readiness and advocacy groups. The department has established the policies and procedures for this important new program. These policies and procedures are described in the link below:  Transferability Fact Sheet (PDF)

Military Spouse Career Advancement

Unofficially referred to as Spouse Tuition Assistance, the Department of Defense recently expanded Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) program can provide up to $4,000 of Financial Assistance for military spouses.
