Moraine Park Technical College has been approved by the Wisconsin State Approving Agency for training of qualified individuals under approved programs and all public laws pertaining to Veterans educational benefits. Moraine Park assists with the GI Bill process and serves as a liaison between various Federal and State agencies, the College, and our students. For more information concerning eligibility and the period of eligibility, contact the nearest VA Office or your County Veterans Service Office.

- Federal Certificate of Eligibility (mailed from the VA once your application is processed).
- Discharge papers/DD-214
- VA Form 22-1995 (only if you’ve previously used Federal GI Bill benefits at another institution).
Covered individuals who provide their certificate of eligibility for either Post 9/11 or VA Vocational Rehabilitation will be held in classes without penalty for 90 days, in accordance with the Veterans Benefits and Transaction Act of 2018.
To receive maximum benefits, a veteran must be enrolled full-time in an associate of applied science degree or technical diploma. Further information is available from the Veterans certifying official.
Keep in mind:
- Only courses required for your degree program may be funded.
- Accelerated, short, or distance learning courses could affect your monthly housing payments.
- You may be required to repay over payments to Moraine Park or the VA for courses that are dropped or not attended.
You must request to be certified to the VA each semester. Fill out the Veteran Certification Request Form once your selection of classes is complete. It is the responsibility of the student receiving veteran education benefits to notify the Veterans certifying official of enrollment, changes in enrollment and withdrawal.
