Students currently enrolled will continue training uninterrupted, and Veteran and training provider applications will continue to be accepted. However, to ensure that Veterans are not negatively impacted, VA will be requesting that all VET TEC Training Providers temporarily discontinue submitting new VET TEC enrollments by close of business November 17, while VA confirms how much funding remains available. If additional funding is available, VA will provide guidance on how additional enrollments can be submitted. VA anticipates completing their review by early December 2023.
The VET TEC Pilot ends on April 1, 2024, but VA has testified to Congress in support of pending legislation to make the program permanent.
Veterans with questions regarding their VET TEC eligibility or the VET TEC program should email the VET TEC team at VETTEC.VBABUF@va.gov. For other questions about their GI Bill® education benefits, Veterans should call the Education Call Center at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551).
