Pick major, sign up for school, go. There isn't anything inherent in going to school that has anything to do with being 100S% disabled. I have 2 master's degrees since being P&T 8yrs ago. I'm bored like that.

Unless you are asking about how to pay for it- then GI Bill, Voc rehab, or out of pocket/FAFSA.

Not to discourage you but veterans can always apply for programs and or benefits, but they may or may not be granted or approved. When I was completing my Degree, the VA and VOC Rehab changed their policy from getting a four-year degree to just focusing on rehabilitating the veteran so he/she could get a job and go back to work.

With VOC Rehab veterans have to go through an assessment/screening to determine if they would be capable of returning to work after completing the program.  If you are talking about the GI bill, I think it might be possible to use it but once again. I am not sure of the GI bill goals to be in the program. Just a little more to think about.

When did you go through? In 04-08 the understanding for vocational rehab was some veterans needed a 4 yr degree, some didn't, but Voc wasnt solely a 4yr degree+job program. It depended on whatever their program setup was.

I think you should better yourself whenever you can.  If I could go back to work and earn SGE, I would do it in a NY minute.  Sure, if it did work out, and I earned substantial gainful employement for a full year, I could wind up eventually surrendering tdiu, but I would much rather be working.

This probably be a new topic (I'm Bad) but VOC rehab will also pay for quality of life. Ie a recliner that helps you get up. A computer and desk to work at etc. You will still have to go through an assessment/screening to determine if you would benefit from you request. Tbird actually did all the above.
