Education and Training

REMOTE Act

On December 21, 2021, President Biden signed the "Responsible Education Mitigating Options and Technical Extensions Act" or the "REMOTE Act" into law.

What does this mean?

Among other things, this law extends the various COVID-19 protections for GI Bill® students from December 21, 2021 to June 1, 2022.

In part, this means that students who were attending a course that was converted to online training because of COVID-19, and were getting paid the resident rate, may continue to train online, and will continue to receive the resident housing rate until June 1, 2022

What's next?

At this time, there is no action required from stakeholders. We are committed to providing regular updates through direct email campaigns and social media about VA's effort to implement these new changes.

What if I have questions?

If you are a student with questions about your GI Bill benefits, please contact the Education Call Center (ECC) at 888-442-4551.

The ECC is open Monday through Friday, from 7am to 6pm CT; it is closed on all federal holidays.
