Principles of Excellence for VA GI Bill® Education Benefits at College of Hair Design
In 2012, President Obama issued Executive Order 13607 directing his administration to design a set of principles that protect veterans and service members who receive federal education benefits. This executive order established what is called “Principals of Excellence” to provide oversight and accountability to the VA GI Bill® Education Benefits for Educational Institutions serving Service Members, Veterans, spouses, and other family members. The Principles of Excellence are guidelines that College of Hair Design has agreed follow. These guidelines include:
- Provide students with a personalized form covering the total cost of an education program.
- Provide educational plans for all Military and Veteran education beneficiaries.
Not using fraudulent and aggressive recruiting techniques by way of any form of misrepresentation.
- Provide accommodations for Service Members and Reservists absent due to service requirements.
- Designate a Point of Contact for academic and financial advising.
- Ensure accreditation of all new programs prior to enrolling students.
- Align institutional refund policies with those under Title IV.
- Informs Veteran students and their dependents of the availability of Federal Financial Aid prior to arranging other financing.
The point of contact for VA benefits is Lisa Finch in the Financial Aid Office of CHD.
