Vocational Schools In Va

Christian Said:

Can someone tell me if these accredations are worth while ?

We Answered:

Sorry, but if this school is located in California and offers bachelors degrees, they should be accredited by WASC (The Western Association of Schools and Colleges), which is the regional accrediting organization for this part of the country.

I looked on the school's website, and there are a couple of really worrisome things on there. First of all, the school is only 17 years old, and it was founded by the current President and CEO of the university. He does not have a Ph.D. The only other information I can find for him is that he taught at DeVry, which doesn't sound like an adequate background for a university President! I don't see anything on the site about a Board of Regents, who would control the behavior of the President. There is also nothing on the site about who does the teaching - this is important, and if it isn't listed, you wonder if they are really qualified. I also went onto the site to look at their business program, since as a business professor, I know something about these things. The classes listed don't look terrible, but the information about what this would prepare you for is COMPLETELY off. There is no way you would be hired as a sales manager or a management consultant right out of a college, especially one like this. I would really think twice before enrolling here.

Question about the Veterans Affairs Vocational Rehab program?

We Answered:

First you need to obtain a copy of the VA Benefits handbook. It has a lot of information in it. A link is included below for it, at the VA website.

Chapter 2 in the book addresses Voc-Rehab.
Chapter 4 in the booklet addresses Education & Training.

Programs for Service-Connected Disabilities
Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) Program assists veterans who have service-connected disabilities obtain and maintain suitable employment. Independent living services are also available for severely disabled veterans who are not currently ready to seek employment. Additional information is available on VA’s Web site at www.vetsuccess.gov.

Eligibility: A veteran must have a VA service-connected disability rated at least 20 percent with an employment handicap, or rated 10 percent with a serious employment handicap, and be discharged or released from military service under other than dishonorable conditions. Servicemembers pending medical separation from active duty may also apply if their disabilities are reasonably expected to be rated at least 20 percent following their discharge.

Entitlement: A VA counselor must decide if the individual has an employment handicap based upon the results of a comprehensive evaluation. After an entitlement decision is made, the individual and counselor will work together to develop a rehabilitation plan. The rehabilitation plan will specify the rehabilitation services to be provided.

Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment Rates
In some cases, a veteran requires additional education or training to become employable. A subsistence allowance is paid each month during training and is based on the rate of attendance (full-time or part-time), the number of dependents, and the type of training. The charts below show the rates as of Oct. 1, 2009.

Subsistence allowance is paid at the following monthly rates for training in an institution of higher learning.

If attending:
Full-time
$547.54 - No dependents
$679.18 - 1 dependent
$800.36 - 2 dependents

Leonard Said:

Can I get approved for VA vocational rehab benefits?

We Answered:

Yes you can, I wasted my Viet Nam era GI Bill go about 80 semester hours. In early 2001 at age 52 I started VOC Rehab for business administration.. Of course it had to be approved with a specific goal in mind to retrain. I graduated three years later with BS in Business Administration. Important thing you have to convince VA that you need to be retrained. Good Luck

Sheila Said:

Gi Bill and Vocational Rehabilitation ?

We Answered:

apply and see what vesid can do for you.

Nora Said:

Veterans Vocational Rehabilitation?

We Answered:

non-vets won't usually understand about the veteran's disability system. In the civilian system you are either 100% or 0%

See VA VocRehab for sure. There are a lot of programs out there and only the pros that manage them know all about them.

There's a massive difference between the VocRehab at VA and the civilian version in your community.

Judy Said:

Will going to school affect my 100% VA disability benefits?

We Answered:

If you are not P & T you may qualify for Vocational Rehabilitation. Since there is a chance of you getting better, and I hope you do, the VA will pay for training and still allow you to keep your 100% temporary, and you may qualify for Individual Unemployability which will increase the benefits you receive. Voc Rehab will give you a monthly stipend in addition to paying for everything you need for school, including in some cases a laptop. I am currently using this program and with my wife and three children my pay for voc rehab is $901 per month. Add that to the 100% pay and you should be doing pretty well. I would recommend this over the G.I. Bill. Also, if your rating goes to 100% P & T you will lose education benefits. You will not lose your disability pay when you receive a bachelor's degree, but you would lose voc rehab. And going to school on your own will not cause you to lose your temporary rating.

Working with a 100% rating gets tricky. If you are rated IU or temporary you will not be able to work without losing your benefits, but if you are P & T you will be able to work. People will ask how you can work if you are 100% disabled, but that is between you and your doctor, but until you get P & T you will be able to only make a small amount each month, the $900 you heard sounds close but you should definitely find out because that may even be a little high, so voc rehab would cover that amount for you.

Good luck and I hope you are able to get well.
