Most of the training programs at Renton Technical College which offer a Certificate of Completion or an Associate of Applied Science degree are approved for benefits under the following Veterans Administration regulations:
- Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation)
- 30 (Montgomery Bill)
- 32 (VEAP)
- 35 (Survivors and Dependents Educational Assistance)
- 1606 (Reserves) of Title 38, U.S. Code.
- 33 (Post 9/11)
Students who plan to use their veteran's benefits are required to contact the Veteran's Specialist, Margo Izutsu at 425-235-2352 ext. 5738.
A determination of eligibility by the Veterans Administration and the receipt of your first month's benefits can take 4 to 6 weeks, so it's a good idea to apply well in advance of your anticipated start date if you plan to use your benefits to pay for initial tuition costs.
Veterans who have used their educational benefits at a prior college must submit an academic transcript for evaluation of credits. All veterans are required to keep the Veterans' Specialist apprised of enrollment plans each quarter and are expected to conform to the attendance and academic standards of the satisfactory progress policy to remain eligible for benefits.
