2.6.3 Veteran's Benefits

Alexandria Technical & Community College is approved by the Minnesota State Approving Agency for veterans' educational benefits. The vet's benefit program is administered in the Financial Aid Office. The VA Form 22-1990 or 22-1999 must be filled out in order to receive any benefits. The veteran must provide a certified DD-214 when applying for benefits. Also required if applicant is married and/or with dependents are certified copies of the marriage license and birth certificates.

IMPORTANT – All students who are receiving either the Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty or Selected Reserve MUST now verify their enrollments monthly to receive payments. This verification can be done either by using the Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) application at www.gibill.va.gov/wave or using the automated telephone system at 1-877-823-2378 and follow the prompts. Failure to do so will delay the benefit checks. The veteran is also responsible for reporting changes in address, marital status, dependents, or enrollment as soon as they occur.
