An essay by Dr. Jennifer Sasser, gerontology program director, was published in the International Journal of Reminiscence and Lifelong Learning in January 2015.
A veteran who is eligible for an evaluation under Chapter 31 must complete an application and meet with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC). Funding for the Vocational Rehabilitation (Chapter 31) program is coordinated and determined as a result of direct communication between the veteran student and their Veteran's Rehabilitation Counselor. You can learn more about this program and whether or not you are qualified by viewing the information on the Veterans Affairs page or by contacting a Veteran's Benefit Counselor at 1.888.GI.BILL.1 (1.888.442.4551).
If you qualify for Chapter 31, please follow these easy steps to receive your education benefits:
1. Meet with your Veteran's Rehabilitation Counselor
to discuss your eligibility for the program and to create your individualized rehabilitation plan.
2. Apply for admission
to your degree or certificate program at Marylhurst University.
Admission to a certificate or degree program is required to be eligible for benefits. You can start your application online today. For paper applications, please contact the Office of Admissions.
In addition to the application you submit, there are other requirements to complete your admission depending on your program of study and your application classification.
Every applicant is assigned an admissions counselor who is available to help you every step of the way. From helping you request transcripts to providing more information about your program of study, your counselor is a valuable resource. Your counselor is assigned at the time of application, and you can contact the Office of Admissions at 503.699.6268 or toll-free 800.634.9982, ext. 6268, to talk with your counselor at any time.
3. Contact your VA counselor
and confirm they have sent your Form 1905 to the Voc Rehab Certifying Official in the Office of Student Accounts at email@example.com.
