VA VocRehab at PNCA
PNCA participates with Vocational Rehabilitation Education Assistance Program. (VR&E Chapter 31)
A Veteran who is eligible for an evaluation under Chapter 31 must first apply for services and receive an appointment with their local Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC). PNCA, in collaboration with the counselor and the eligible student, certifies enrollment and eligible tuition and fees.
Any individual who is entitled to educational assistance under chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment, or chapter 33, Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits who is admitted to the College will be permitted to attend and/or participate in their course of education during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides to the College a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under Chapter 31 or 33 and ending on the earlier of either (1) the date on which payment from VA is made to the College, or (2) 90 days after the date the College certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certificate of eligibility.
No penalty will be imposed, including assessment of late fees, denial of access to classes, libraries or other institutional facilities, because of the individual’s inability to meet their financial obligations to the College due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under Chapter 31 or 33.
