Dependents or spouses of veterans disabled or deceased as a result of a service related injury may be eligible for dependents educational benefit. Other educational benefits are extended to veterans using vocational rehabilitation. Once enrolled, recipients must request the Financial Aid Office verify their enrollment with the Veterans Administration to commence benefits.
