Tutorial Assistance

Tutorial Assistance

Contact the Student Veteran Services Office to discuss tutoring opportunities. Students eligible for benefits under Chapters 30, 33, 1606, and 35 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.
