Joe,

I believe they can make you return the money, but to be sure call the college's financial aid vet specialist they can confirn the regs.

As long as you attend classes regularly you shouldn't. Remember they'll pay for tutoring, so you shouldn't fail. Keep your counselor posted as to your progress, just to be sure.

Philip is correct- under Voc Rehab they can provide tutors and even make accommodatons to your PTSD.

My husband made 2 formal requests to accommodate his PTSD and the college granted what he needed.

The college will have a VA counselor to help you get tutoring if needed and with any possible request for accomodation that is reasonable.

I am a Chapter 35er and I think CHap 35ers can receive tutoring too- not sure.

You can ask your school if they have accommodations for people with disabilities. You can also ask your professors can you record their classes. It really does help but it would be like sitting in the class more than once. You can also ask the professors for test reviews to better help you focus and concentrate.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
