Tutorial Assistance

Tutorial assistance may be arranged, and any associated costs may be offset, for eligible persons utilizing VA Educational Benefit Chapters 30, 31, 32, 33 and 35. This tutoring-expense allowance is considered a supplement to the student’s monthly educational assistance check and paid without any entitlement charge for those training under Chapters 31, 33 and 35. For those utilizing Chapter 30 and 32 benefits, however, an individual’s period of entitlement will be charged for the amount of tutorial assistance paid in excess of $600.

The VA will pay up to a maximum of $100 per month for tutorial assistance. The maximum assistance to which a claimant will be eligible throughout the duration of his/her entitlement is $1200.
