Important Information

Important information for students to know

The following information is a general listing of important topics for veteran students so that they may better understand the policies and procedures required to attain their benefits.

Section 702 (The Choice Act)

Kentucky and ECTC are in compliance with Section 702 (The Choice Act) for in-state resident rate requirement.  If you are receiving VA education benefits and are being charged out-of-state tuition, please contact us immediately to resolve this matter.

Online Classes

Remedial or deficiency courses cannot be taken online. These classes must be taken in a classroom. The Department of Veterans Affairs will not pay for remedial, refresher, or deficiency classes taken online.

Regarding Books

Some classes have digital textbooks tied to tuition. These digital textbooks are not covered by what DVA pays for tuition under the Post 9/11 GI Bill (you may use your book stipend to cover these charges once you receive it). If you are a dependent or spouse and use the KDVA tuition waiver, this waiver does not cover these digital book fees.

College Navigator

College Navigator is a tool for students to aid in the selection of schools and training programs.

Verification of Enrollment

Student receiving benefits under Chapters 30 and 1606 must verify their enrollment at the end of each month enrolled in classes. You can do so by going online to or by calling the toll free line at 1-877-823-2378.
