(International) Remind Veterans About Accredited Educational Plants A rnmindcr to veterans that tho law will not permit them to take GI Bill courses In schools which have not boon In operation on their own for at lerutt a yoar. nor In HCh<5olB not having approval of an appropriate State Approving Agency, was issued today by Harry T. Wood, manager ot the Hartford office of the Veterans Administration. Manager Wood urged all veterans planning to go to school under the GI Bill, with certificates of eligibility now In their possession, to make certain the school IB permitted by law to offer training to veterans at Government expense. A veteran may check the status of the school he wishes to attend by calling at or writing to, his nearest VA office. Certificates are valid, according to Manager Wood, only In thoac educational Institutions or training establishments where GI Bill training Is permitted by law. If a vclcran enters a school that has not been In operation for a year or does not have State Approving Agency approval, ho will receive no imlmlHlonco and ho will bo ro- (julrod to pay hlii own tuition and supply costs., even though he has a certificate of eligibility.
