Veterans Education Benefits

The following VA Education Benefits may be used at West Kentucky Community and Technical College:

  • Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill
  • Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation (service-connected disabled veterans)
  • Chapter 33 Post-9/11 GI Bill (Veterans and Dependents)
  • Chapter 35 Survivor's and Dependents' Educational Assistance Program (dependents and spouses of 100% disabled or deceased veterans)
  • Chapter 1606 Montgomery GI Bill Selected Reserve

Other education benefits (non-VA):

If you are on active duty, a drilling reservist, or a member of the National Guard you may qualify for Federal or State Tuition Assistance (TA). Many of these programs are time-sensitive so the earlier you get things done, the smoother your benefits will go. Keep in mind that schools and other programs have their own deadlines as well.

Work with your respective branch of service if you plan to use Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA). Please use the following links for additional information.

Speak with your Educational Services Officer (ESO) or Counselor prior to enrolling.

Verifying your enrollment for VA benefits: Chapters 30, 1606, 1607
