Covered Institutions

Identifying a Covered Educational Institution

The term ‘‘covered educational institution’’ for purposes of section 305 of Public Law 115-48 is an educational institution as defined in § 21.4200(a) that has enrolled 20 or more individuals using educational assistance under title 38, United States Code. If your educational institution or facility meets that criteria, you must complete the annual School Certifying Official (SCO) training requirements. To verify if your institution or facility is a covered educational institution, click on your state (below) and search for your school’s name.

SCOs who have questions regarding covered educational institutions should direct them to their ELR of Jurisdiction.
