Veterans Affairs is working to implement changes to ensure students continue to receive their education benefits even if they are part of a program that has changed from resident training to online training.
There is no action required from a G.I. Bill® student. VA has scheduled several training sessions with all ODVA SAA Approved schools and training facilities over the next couple of days to provide further guidance. We will work closely with schools to ensure enrollments are accurately certified and processed in a timely manner.
