Veteran Schedule &
Tuition Funding

Centriq's IT Career Program is an accelerated path to an IT career. We start our tracks throughout the year, so you're always only months from your new career no matter when you transition out of the service. Our Veteran students find they have many learned skills that transfer to a technology career. Our classes also provide structure and routine which lead to a successful learning environment.

Academic Calendar

Centriq offers day and evening class options (evening classes are only offered in Kansas City at this time). Our daytime tracks run approximately four months, and evening tracks run approximately seven months. There are several self-study weeks built into each track to give the students an opportunity to catch up on any areas that they would like to review.

USE YOUR GI BILL® FOR Funding

Our program tuition varies based upon the program you choose. Generally, our tuition approximates the cost of attending college for one year. This reflects the fact that the number of actual classroom (or “contact”) hours of our IT career programs are equivalent to classroom hours of two semesters in a traditional college.

Centriq’s programs are eligible for both Montgomery and the Post 9/11 GI Bill®funding as well as VA Vocational Rehab. Utilize them to kickstart your journey in tech. On average, 30% of Centriq’s students are veterans funding their training with these benefits. Our knowledgeable and dedicated team members will assist you through the process to ensure you receive all benefits available to you.

If you don't have GI Bill® funding available, there are many other options our students take advantage of to fund their training. We work with multiple student loan partners and can help you navigate the process. Many students have utilized other sources such as personal bank loans, loans from relatives or cash. There are also various government programs to fund or partially fund tuition including Workforce Investment Act, Trade Act and Vocation Rehabilitation Funds.

Understanding Your Eligibility for VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) Services

The VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) program, also known as Chapter 31, is designed to assist Veterans with service-connected disabilities in preparing for, finding, and maintaining suitable employment. It also offers services to help Veterans with severe disabilities achieve independence in daily living.

Eligibility criteria

  • Service Connection: You must have a service-connected disability rating of at least 10% from the VA.
 
  • Discharge Status: Your discharge must be other than dishonorable.
 
  • Entitlement: You must be found entitled to VR&E services through an evaluation process conducted by a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC).

How to apply

  • Online: You can apply for VR&E services online through the VA’s eBenefits portal.

  • In Person: Visit your nearest VA regional office and submit an application for VR&E services. You can use the VA Facility Locator to find the closest office.

  • By Mail: Complete VA Form 28-1900 (Disabled Veterans Application for Vocational Rehabilitation) and mail it to your local VA Regional Office.

IT school student, Mike Greer.

I was concerned about funding for tuition. Russ walked me through all of the options and helped find one that worked for me. I'm glad I didn't assume I'd never be able to qualify. Thank you Russ!"
