Veterans /Military Benefits
New England Institute of Technology is committed to assisting all students who are eligible for veterans/military benefits. New England Tech has a dedicated VA Representative on campus to guide you through the process of utilizing your GI Bill benefits.
We are pleased to announce our continued participation and commitment to the Yellow Ribbon Program as part of the new Post 9/11 GI Bill Chapter 33. Starting in the Fall 2013 quarter, the college will provide up to $2850 annually in Yellow Ribbon benefits to each eligible student, which is matched by an equal $2850 annual maximum by the Veterans Administration. This is an increase from our 2012-13 Yellow Ribbon spending levels, which had been $2500 per year per student award. New England Tech continues to place no limit on the number of students eligible for these benefits each year. New England Tech has a dedicated VA Representative on campus located in the Financial Aid office, to guide you through the process of utilizing your GI Bill benefits. You are also welcome to use the computer lab located in the Financial Aid Office to access on line applications and information about your benefits.
Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP)
The VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011 was recently passed by Congress to provide assistance for unemployed Veterans. NEIT has been determined to be eligible to participate in this program as of August 2012. If you are an unemployed Veteran between the ages of 35 and 60 and plan to enroll at NEIT, you may qualify for benefits under the VRAP portion of this legislation.
