There was some confusion at first, but the Missoula College is now able to offer the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program.

Interim Vice President for Integrated Communications, Peggy Kuhr, says the program offers up to 12 months of training assistance to unemployed veterans. The Department of Veterans Affairs gave approval for Missoula College to use the program on December 17th.

UM officials recently learned a handful of Missoula-area veterans had qualified for VRAP but were unable to use the funding to attend Missoula College. Veterans must be enrolled full-time in an approved program of education offered by a community (two-year) college or technical school to use the program.

UM President Royce Engstrom said is was simply a matter of filling out the right paperwork, and that the issue has been solved.
