Isakson and Roe Requirements

Most answers to questions concerning your individual benefits and certifications can be found at the VA’s GI Bill® page. The GI Bill® Comparison Tool provides information about college affordability and brings together information from more than 17 different online sources and three federal agencies, including the number of students receiving VA education benefits at each school.

The Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020 requires institutions to provide certain information to students who will be receiving educational assistance through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Institutions must provide personalized information to individuals who will be using benefits under chapters 30, 31, 32, 33, or 35 of title 38, U.S.C., or chapter 1606 of title 10, U.S.C. Most of the required information is contained on Macalester’s website and on the financial aid eligibility notification that is sent directly to each student prior to the start of each academic year. However, some of the information is found elsewhere. We have provided links to all of the information for your convenience.
