To qualify, the veteran must have been honorably discharged from the military and submit their Form DD214 to the School Registrar.  This voucher has a value of between $360 and $2,040 depending on the length of the student’s training ($120 per week times the number of weeks of training).  This voucher can only be used for  the School’s housing facility stay and cannot be redeemed for cash.
