Those participating in career-oriented programs through Virginia Tech Continuing and Professional Education may be eligible for financial assistance through the following routes:

GI Bill (Chapter 30) VA Benefits: Honorably discharged military personnel may be able to use VA benefits to pay for training. With approval from the Department of Veterans Services, Continuing and Professional Education offers these classroom-based programs that are approved for GI Bill funding:

For more information regarding veterans' benefits, please contact the Veterans Administration toll free at 888-GIBILL1 or visit the administration's website.

Military Spouse Assistance (CAA): Spouses of active duty military members stationed in California, Georgia, and North Carolina are still able to use the original Department of Defense and Department of Labor Career Advancement Account portable career training funds for up to $6,000 of training, books, and some supplies. Spouses are eligible for this program even if their military spouse is outside of the MyCAA restricted ranks and even if they have already exhausted their MyCAA funds. Spouses must first visit the education officer on base and attend a brief orientation.

Military Spouse Assistance (MyCAA): Spouses of active duty military members around the world may be eligible for up to $4,000 in tuition for career training. Establish an account at the MyCAA website in order to apply online. (This is a secure government site, so you will need to accept the certificates). MyCAA is now limited to certification and licensure programs and associate degrees. The program is open to all eligible spouses under the new guidelines below:

Military Tuition Assistance (TA): Many Virginia Tech Continuing and Professional Education certificate programs can be eligible for tuition assistance, depending upon individual circumstances.

Workforce Investment Act (WIA): If you have been forced out of work due to downsizing and reorganization, you may be eligible for federal training dollars.
