The deadline for most veterans
for starting a course of educa

Bill is 15 months away on
July 25, 1951.
A Veterans Administration
regulation, issued today, states
that the majority of veterans will
not be permitted to begin G. I.
Bill courses after that date. An
exception has been made for
those discharged after July 25,
1917, and those who enlisted or
reen listed under the Armed
Forces Voluntary Recruitment
July 25, 1951, however, is not
important to veterans who have
started and actualy are pursu

date, as they have the right to
continue their course.
The VA regulation explains
that a veteran who has started
a course and who has continued
in it will be considered to be in
training, even though he has
temporarily interrupted the
course for the summer vacation
or for other reasons beyond his

Most veterans are subject to
the 1951 and 1956 cut-off dates.
But there are the following ex
ceptions: (1) Veterans discharg
ed after July 25, 1947, have four
years from date of discharge in
which to begin G. I. Bill training.
However, they must finish by
July 25, 1956.
(2) Veterans who enlisted or
reenlisted under the Armed
Forces Voluntary Recruitment
Act (between October 6, 1945, and
October 5, 1946) are not bound
by either deadline. Instead, they
have four years from the end
of that enlistment or reenlist-
ment period in which to start,
and nine years from that time
in which to complete their course
A- veteran in either of these
two categories actually must be

entrance deadline comes around,

date will have to meet.
They will be expected to pur

is not due to his own misconduct,
his own neglect or his own lack
