Veteran’s Education Benefits

Veterans and students eligible for Veterans Administration (VA) education benefits must complete the college’s application procedures for degree or certificate students. In addition, such students must contact the College VA representative, Melissa Hall, 860-343-5720 or  Reservists eligible for the Montgomery GI Bill® (Chapter 1606) must contact the College VA Representative and supply the Notice of Basic Eligibility (NOBE) form in order to file for benefits. CT tuition waiver may apply to some veterans.

All students who will use VA benefits must be enrolled at Middlesex as degree or certificate-seeking students.  New students must have military and civilian education evaluated by the college.  Since Veterans Administration benefits cover only courses, which do not replicate previously gained credit, students receiving VA benefits are advised to submit their separation (DD214) and/or educational transcripts for an evaluation of Military Learning and/or transfer credits.

Continued eligibility for benefits is contingent upon the student complying with college regulations and conformance with program of study requirements.  Only courses required for degree or certificate completion are covered by VA benefit programs.  Additional courses selected by the student become the financial responsibility of the student.
