Selected Reserve, Chapter 1606

The Montgomery GI Bill (Selected Reserve) is a program of education benefits for members of the reserve elements of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, as well as the Army National Guard and the Air National Guard. To be eligible for the program, a reservist must have a six-year obligation to serve in the Selected Reserve signed after June 30, 1985, complete initial active duty for training, and remain in good standing in a Selected Reserve unit.


Dependent, Chapter 35

Children, spouses, widows, and widowers of veterans who died in service or as a result of a service-connected disability, who became permanently and totally disabled as a result of a service-connected liability; who died while a disability so evaluated was in existence; or who have been listed as missing in action, captured, detained, or interned in line of duty for more than 90 days are eligible for educational assistance. Recipients are entitled to 45 months of educational assistance. Delimiting dates vary and questions concerning them should be referred to the Regional Office.


Vocational Rehabilitation, Chapter 31 

Veterans who served in the armed forces during World War II or thereafter are eligible for vocational rehabilitation if all three of the following conditions are met:

  • They suffered a service-connected disability in active service which entitles them to compensation, or would do so but for receipt of retirement pay;
  • They were discharged or released under other than dishonorable conditions; and the VA determines that they need vocational rehabilitation to overcome the
  • Handicap of their disabilities. Generally, a veteran is eligible for vocational rehabilitation for nine years following discharge or release.

Veterans' Responsibility

Veterans who change their status by adding or dropping credits or ceasing attendance must notify the Veteran’s Officer at once in order that veteran’s benefits may be adjusted within 30 days of the change.


Scheduling Priority for Veteran/Military Service Students

HB 488 of 2014 requires that Ohio public institutions of higher education provide veteran students with preference in scheduling courses.

Per HB 488, Zane State College offers priority registration and scheduling preference to veterans, current members of the military, and dependents who are using education benefits through the Department of Veteran Affairs.     

Course schedule preference means that veterans and dependent students who are admitted to all courses for credit offered at Zane State College are able to start registering for courses sooner than students with the same class standing.  Zane State College’s goal is to ensure that veterans and military service students are moving through their academic programs in alignment with the time limits on their benefits and to recognize their service.
