Chapter 31

Main content start

Please review the information below to determine your next steps with VA and Stanford for receiving Chapter 31 benefits.


Chapter 31 Veteran Readiness & Employment (VR&E) Overview 

Unlike other benefit chapters, VR&E applications are assigned to a caseworker and evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Students should anticipate the application process to involve in-person meetings with their assigned caseworker, and completion of research on the potential impact the requested program will have on their long-term employability. Students should be prepared for the VR&E application process to be lengthier than other types of benefits. We HIGHLY recommend students do not begin terms they are planning to fund with VR&E until official caseworker approval has been received. 

Once a caseworker has approved a student’s course of study, they will send a Purchase Order to Stanford’s VA Certification Officers, which will be used to certify enrollment periods. Billing for VR&E goes through an additional step of processing through Stanford’s Third Party Contract (TPC) office; students will need to ensure they have a TPC account in place to be able to use VR&E.
