Please note: VA regulations state that active duty service members may not receive standard VA benefits for the same courses for which they receive Tuition Assistance (TA) from the military. Some Active Guard Reserve (AGR) members receiving Chapter 1606 or Chapter 1607 benefits are considered to be on active duty. The active duty prohibition would apply to these AGR members.
Once you’re accepted and registered for classes at St. Mary’s, ensure all required documentation has been submitted to the VA Certifying Official in the Financial Aid Office
