The GI Bill Comparison Tool also links to other VA help sites, such as the eBenefits Jobs portal, to help new or returning student veterans find employment in their chosen college area.
The second system is the long awaited VA GI Bill Feedback System. Student veterans who have a complaint about their educational institution can use the GI Bill Feedback System to report specific issues. Student veterans may submit a complaint if their school or employer is failing to follow the Principles of Excellence. The VA will review the following types of complaints:
- Recruiting and Marketing Practices
- Quality of Education
- Grade Policy…see all
Reporting these types of issues helps the VA get a better idea of problematic schools and employers, which may not be the best for veterans.
New student veterans looking to find schools that participate in the Principles of Excellence program can use the VA’s school locator tool. The school locator tool is the best method for finding an educational institution that is currently approved for VA education benefits..
