To apply and establish entitlement for Veterans Administration (VA) educational benefit programs, the applicant should contact the Financial Aid Office at Washburn Tech, Building A, Suite AC117. Program eligibility generally ceases ten years (15 years under the Post 9/11 GI Bill®) from the date of the veteran’s release from active duty.
Eligible recipients of educational assistance must certify their enrollment each semester through the Financial Aid Office to assure continuous benefits. When changes in enrollment occur, such as dropping courses, not attending class, or not formally withdrawing from Washburn Tech, the student must submit a report of mitigating circumstances. The VA expects veterans to pursue an educational objective, regularly attend classes, and make satisfactory progress.
