Dependents Education Assistance (DEA) Chapter 35


Hello! My son recently requested his eligibility letter for the Chapter 35. They said that he was eligible, however his degree plan was not. He put down Advertising because it was the closest degree to what he wants to do which is Graphic Design. So can he go back and change it ? Redo the paperwork and send for review for eligibility? We waited weeks for the letter to arrive to find out the degree he chose is not eligible when it was a choice in the drop down box. Thank you for your time . Now I am concerned that the choice won’t be eligible. He is in the process of getting his basics for his Associates. What should we have put instead?

I can't answer your questions for you without seeing the completed forms. I'd suggest he start over and work with a counselor at the school to get this done.
