U.S.A. MILITARY VETERANS (GI Bill):
We are approved for all our classes through the Illinois State Veterans Administration for payment to certain USA military veterans. You can find our school on the VA GI Bill website when you click on the link “Choosing a School” CLICK HERE. You will need to bring to us a DD214 and fill out some forms at the school. The VA benefit will reimburse you after you have completed the course and paid us out of pocket. After October 1, 2011 rules changed and the school will be paid directly for the course(s). Details of this change are described on the VA page CLICK HERE.
Children of Veterans: For children to use veteran’s benefits, the father or mother MUST have been either rated 100% service-connected disabled or have died in the service (either in service or as a result of the disability). Unless, the veteran has served on active duty (or was mobilized) after 9/11/01 AND transferred some of the benefits to the child before he or she left the service.
This vocational school is not eligible for Federal grants or Federal loans. If you seek financing through these avenues, it would be best to take your course through the community college nearest you that can offer these Federal programs.
