VR&E - Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation Certification Process
Beginning January of this year, the VR&E implemented a new system of invoicing and billing using the Tungsten Network. In order to get certified for your Winter and Spring 2021 courses, your counselor will need to ensure they have input the digital authorization form (Form 1905/Purchase Order) in the invoicing system. Once the School Certifying Official received the authorization, and your VA Certification form (available here: VETERAN REQUEST FOR CERTIFICATION FORM ), they will process the request and notify the bookstore and fiscal services in order to allow you to purchase your books online and get your tuition and fees paid for.
Purchasing Your Books
We have asked the bookstore to create an online payment option for our VR&E student veterans that will allow you to get your authorized books delivered to your home within 2-3 business days of ordering them online. Unfortunately, the bookstore will not be able to provide any authorized supplies for online purchase and will need to be purchased out of pocket elsewhere by the student veteran and then reimbursed by the VR&E department directly to the student veteran.
You will notice this on the ELAC bookstore indicating that they are now allowing students to purchase their textbooks online using the "EAST A/R CHARGE - VETERANS" option at checkout (see screenshot below):
When you receive the notification from the School Certifying Official that your VA Certification has been processed, you can then proceed to purchase your books from the ELAC Bookstore. You can now schedule a curb-side pickup or have your books shipped to you by UPS Ground.
Please allow 2-3 days for receipt of your books. A tracking number will be provided by the ELAC bookstore to ensure can follow the delivery (unless you scheduled a curb-side pickup).
