The faculty and staff of PC Professor deeply thank all of the men and women who have unselfishly and bravely served in our military and actively defended our wonderful country. Each of you have put your life on the line for us to enjoy the freedoms we, as Americans, value so dearly. As such, we are honored to assist you and, of course, will do our absolute best to provide you with the coordinated care that you deserve. We wholeheartedly welcome you home and look forward to academically helping you meet your career objectives in the computer industry.
As a Microsoft IT Academy, PC Professor pledges to do whatever reasonably possible to help you academically succeed at our hands-on, computer career school. If special assistance is ever needed in any of our hands-on and instructor-led classes, don’t hesitate to ask. We will be happy to help.
As an approved training provider for the VA, make sure to ask your PC Professor Admissions Rep about special scholarships which may be available for those who have served honorably in our military forces. We may be able to work with you on programs including the Post 9-11 GI Bill, MGIB (Montgomery GI Bill) and the Tillman Military Scholars Program.
Besides various tuition-based programs, we will coordinate with the local Veterans Affairs office to help you achieve both your academic and career goals:
President Obama signed the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2010 (Public Law 11 1-377) in 2011. These changes made a significant impact on how veterans may use education benefits, including the Montgomery GI Bill, Post-9/41 GI Bill and REAP. Some of the more significant changes in the law include the following:
Monthly housing allowance benefits;
Up to $17,500 in annual tuition scholarships (The VA Yellow Ribbon Program may be used for costs in excess of the cap);
Students can be reimbursed for more than one vendor certification test, and can now be reimbursed for fees paid to take national exams used for admission to an institution of higher learning;
The Post-9/11 GI Bill has been expanded to include Active Service performed by National Guard members under title 32 U.S.C. or under section 502(f) for the purpose of responding to a national emergency;
It allows individuals who are eligible for both Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment benefits and Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to choose the Post 9/11 GI Bill and allows for a monthly housing allowance instead of the Chapter 31 subsistence allowance;
Veterans can use Post 911 GI Bill benefits for non-college degree programs such as on-the-job training, apprenticeship training, and other programs offered at technical-vocational schools such as PC Professor which are licensed by the Department of Education and have obtained prior approval as VA training facilities;
The books and supplies stipend can be paid to students attending school while on active duty.

While most of PC Professor’s classes pre-qualify for VA educational benefits, students are encouraged to get specific clearance in advance from their individual VA guidance counselor before enrolling in any VA tuition reimbursement program to insure compliance with all federal requirements. Some programs may require additional lab or classroom hours to meet VA program requirements.
