They should pay it as soon as you are found eligible by VA for Voc Rehab and enroll and establish a course projection.

The Voc Rehab stipend comes on the first of month like regular comp but that might take a little time to get squared away.

My husband was in Voc Rehab and he had a great VA counselor at the College.She was PGW veteran and made it all go very smoothly because she had liason directly to the VA Educational dept in Buffalo.

The VA pays the tuition on a quarterly basis that conforms to the courses you are taking.The stipend depends of course on your attendance and grades.

Are you already matriculated into a college? Have you developed relationship with their VA counselor? As I recall the VA counselor gave my husband a book voucher too and VA paid for his course materials.They also honored his written request for 2 accommodations to his VA SC disability.

Thanks Berta for your reply. I have been going to the college for over a year, but just started getting Voc rehab. I have started getting my monthly stipend and book voucher, my counselor has been great with that. This is my 8th week of instruction and the tuition has not been paid. So if the tuition if paid on a quarterly basis and I started school Jan 3rd, I don't know when it will get paid.

Maybe the school counselor can get that straightened out?

I am surprised this happened as VA is pretty good regarding Chap 31 payments.I hope the college isn't bugging you for the money.

I am DEA Chap 35 graduate and this wasn't a problem at all for me.Then again I had to pay the tuition and then VA would reimburse me based on a daily rate which came out to about the same amount.CHap 35 is different in that respect.

Do you deal with Buffalo VA Educational Dept? I might still have their email addy.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
