Are There Any Online Full-Time Technical Schools That Accept VRAP?
Q: Need an online full –time technical school that will accept VRAP as its funding source. Please help!
A: There are actually quite a few schools where you can use the VRAP GI Bill. One of the best ways to identify the schools is through the College Navigator search program. First, start by clicking on the Browse Programs button, and select the career of your choice. If you are looking for a technical school, then most likely you will want to check certification for a Level of Award, but it could be an associate’s degree too, depending on your selected field.
Finally select your Institution Type — whether you are looking for public or private school and if they are a two-year school or less than two years. The list of schools the sites returns are ones that match your selected options. Then, you would have to go school-by-school and click on each school’s website to see if they offer their program as an online option.
As you know, under the VRAP program, you are eligible for up to 12 additional months of training in a high demand field. The pay you would get is the same as if you were using the Montgomery GI Bill - $1,473 per month currently at the time of this writing. Out of your monthly money, you have to pay your own tuition, fees, books, etc.
Once you are finished with your training program, the Department of Labor offers resources to help you find a job.
