UC military students can stay informed with links and information.
Here's a list of organizations who have established a partnership with the UC military program.
Military students require special needs that UC staff is able to meet.
On November 25, 2015, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) made changes to the Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP).The REAP program was originally created to provide benefits to members of the Reserve components who were either called or ordered to active service by the President or Congress.
REAP served to bridge the education benefit gap between those eligible for the Montgomery GI Bill-Selected Reserve and those serving in the Reserve component who were called to active duty but were not eligible for the Montgomery GI Bill-Selected Reserve.
The changes in the program will affect beneficiaries differently:
The VA understands these changes may have an impact on students who expect to return to school for the spring 2016 semester. In most cases, students will be eligible for Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits. The VA is actively working to identify Veterans who have previously applied for VA benefits and are affected by this change to notify them of this change and their potential eligibility for other VA educational assistance programs.
For more information, please call the VA at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (7 a.m. to 7 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday) to speak with an Education Call Center Agent on questions about benefits or eligibility for education assistance programs.
