Turing School is proud to accept the various chapters of the GI Bill. As veterans, you have attained unique skills and attributes which make you good students as well as highly employable candidates in the job market. Turing is here to assist you with maximizing the use of your benefits toward your future goals.
So, you have been accepted to Turing and you are eligible for veterans’ benefits. Now what?
Once your GI Bill application has been accepted and approved by the VA, you will next need to provide Turing with the following information:
All documents must be uploaded to your Turing Populi account. Once logged in to Populi, click on Financial then Financial Aid and upload all documents on the right side of the screen under Files. If you have any questions regarding your documents, you can sumit them through Populi using the "Ask a Question" button on the Financial Aid screen.
Note: The above 4 steps MUST be completed prior to you being eligible to begin the program at Turing if you intend to fund your education exclusively through VA Benefits. We cannot accurately certify your enrollment without all this information.
Upon receipt of all required documents, Turing will begin the Enrollment Certification Process. Once your enrollment certification has been submitted to the VA, you are ready to begin classes. We will stand by until the VA processes your certification and sends payment for your tuition, and your start of the program is not dependent on Turing receiving funds from the VA. In the event your tuition is not completely covered by eligible VA Benefits, we will work with you on a payment plan that will best suit your situation.
A few things to note:
This is a new program the VA has implemented to support veterans who were never eligible for GI Bill benefits or their benefits have run out. This program can help veterans cover up to 12 months of tuition and receive an MHA payment. Eligibility requirements and more information can be found here.
NOTE: All students using this program must follow the GI Bill documentation steps listed above prior to their cohort's tuition due date in order for their certification to be completed on time.
