Veterans who are currently or in the past have utilized the Veterans Readiness & Employment (VR&E) Chapter 31 benefits may be eligible for the restoration of additional months of educational benefits from other chapters, due to recent changes enacted by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Cameron University encourages anyone who has utilized VR&E Chapter 31 benefits to contact CU Office of Veterans Affairs at 580-581-2301 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance in determining eligibility for additional educational benefits. Walk-in visitors are welcome to stop by the Centennial Room, located in the Shepler Center, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
“This is an exciting development for Chapter 31 beneficiaries,” says Vicki Henson, CU Veterans Affairs Coordinator. “Current and former students, as well as veterans who are interested in pursuing a degree, are welcome to contact us. Enrollment for the summer and fall semesters is currently open, so the timing is perfect.”
Those who contact CU’s Office of Veterans Affairs will be able to schedule a virtual appointment with Alfred Finch, CU’s VetSuccess on Campus counselor. Finch, an employee of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, will provide individualized information for those wishing to determine if they are eligible for additional educational benefits.
