Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP)
The Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) that was put into effect in 2012 has specific provisions. Participants must be enrolled in a VA approved program of education offered by a community college or technical school. The program must lead to an associate degree, non-college Degree, or a certificate, and train the Veteran for a high demand occupation.
Please note that since the program must be offered by a community college or technical school, Rutgers University is not able to participate at this time.
