Who We Are

In order for a veteran, reservist or dependent to use their GI Bill benefits, the program must be approved by a State Approving Agency.

The Maine State Approving Agency for Veterans Education Programs has been designated by the State of Maine to approve courses and program in accordance with the standards and provisions of Chapters 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, and 36 of Title 38, U.S.C., and Chapter 1606 of Title 10, U.S.C.. 

Our primary responsibility and focus is to review, evaluate and approve quality programs of education and training under State and Federal criteria. We conduct on-site supervisory visits to approved institutions and schools seeking approval, provide technical assistance to all interested parties, and are engaged in outreach activities to foster the usage of the GI Bill.
