Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Program (VR&E)

Recipients may qualify to receive payment for tuition and fees, a subsistence allowance, and a book stipend. A recipient’s benefit amount is affected by their rate of pursuit (number of credit hours being taken divided by the number of credit hours considered to be full-time).

The veteran’s Vocational Rehabilitation counselor will determine the number of months of the veteran’s Chapter 31 Benefit eligibility. The basic period of eligibility in which VR&E services may be used is 12 years from the date of separation from active military service or 12 years from the date the veteran was first notified by VA of a service-connected disability rating.

Veterans on Chapter 31 are eligible for a subsistence allowance for required training expenses, such as on tuition and fees, books, supplies, and equipment (ex. Backpack & calculators).

Eligibility Requirements and Applying for Chapter 31:
Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) is for veterans who have a service-connected disability (20% or more).  Interested applicants need to meet with a VA counselor to apply for Chapter 31 benefits or apply online. Once the VA has determined eligibility, he or she will send authorization to the Veteran Services Office to certify enrollment and set up the benefit with UHCL

You are authorized a credit at the UHCL bookstore of $75.00 per Fall/Spring semester term and $37.50 for the Summer semester term.
