We understand the decision to pursue higher education is an exciting step, but at the same time, it involves many factors that can be especially daunting. At ICDC College, we’re here for you every step of the way.
We assist our students with the processing of their educational benefits after a student’s eligibility is determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (Dept. of VA).
Our Military Division is ready to answer any questions you may have, so that this important process is handled as seamlessly and as stress-free as possible.

Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Service (VR&E)

Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
Workforce Investment Act (WIA) was established in 1998 to prepare youth, adults, and dislocated workers for entry and re-entry into the workforce. WIA training funds are designed to serve laid-off individuals, older youth, and adults who are in need of training to enter or re-enter the labor market. Under WIA, first priority will be given to Veterans and eligible Spouses. ICDC College has an extensive network of WIA providers in the community.
Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance Program (DEA)
This program provides education and training opportunities to eligible dependents of Veterans who were permanently disabled or who died on active duty. These benefits offer up to 45 months of educational benefits for those who desire to pursue a certificate or degree.
Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP)
REAP provides up to 36 months of education benefits to Reservists who were called to active duty service in response to war or national emergency. There are no specific time frames to use REAP benefits; however, eligibility generally ends when a Reservist leaves the Selected Reserves.
