Many programs are approved for VA. Eligible veterans may be certified for VA benefits through the Financial Aid Office.

Beginning October 1, 2011, Lake Tech will be able to offer Chapter 33 benefits to eligible veterans!

The Bureau of State Approving Agency for Veteran Training has approved many of the certificate training programs offered at Lake Technical College. Veterans should check with the VA Certifying Official in the Financial Aid Office to apply for or re-activate their VA educational entitlements. All required application forms are available in the Financial Aid Office. The student must bring the completed required forms to the Financial Aid Office with a certified copy of the veteran’s DD214. The documentation is then forwarded to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) for processing. Upon completion of the first day of class, the enrollment certification is reported by the VA Certifying Official to the DVA for processing. It takes a minimum of 4-8 weeks to activate benefits.

The student is eligible for educational benefits for the length of the program as approved by the DVA. The student must check with the school’s VA Certifying Official to verify the DVA’s approval of his/her program length.

All veterans receiving educational benefits while attending Lake Tech are subject to the policies and procedures of the school. See the current school catalogopens in a new window for more information.
