Did you know the Department of Veterans Affairs pays for tutoring? If you feel you need help in your academic courses, please come by the ULM Veterans Affairs Office to obtain information about this service. The DVA will pay up to $600 in tutorial help for you if you are receiving VA educational benefits. The DVA pays for the tutor at a rate of no more than $100 per month, which is paid to you. You are responsible for paying the tutor. You may be eligible for an additional $600 in tutoring benefits (for a total of $1,200). This additional $600 in tutoring will be deducted from your VA educational benefits.
You may be eligible for VA Work-Study if you are enrolled 3/4 time or more and are currently receiving VA educational benefits. The work-study program allows you to work at an approved VA site. Most ULM students eligible to work in the VA Work Study program work approximately 20 hours per week. Those who are eligible are paid at the greater of either the federal or state minimum wage. To apply, complete VA form 22-8691.
