Students eligible for benefits may be eligible for tutorial assistance. Tutoring is a supplement to the student's regular education benefit.
Students who are eligible may receive a maximum monthly payment of $100. The maximum total benefit is $1,200 per student per benefit program. There is no entitlement charge for the first $600 of tutorial assistance under Chapters 30 and 1606. For assistance over $600, the VA will charge one month of entitlement whenever you receive an amount equal to the full-time monthly rate you get for going to school. There is no entitlement charge under Chapters 33 or 35.
Note: The VA will not pay for tutoring received more than one year before the day the VA received your claim.
