Veterans Administration Reimbursement for CPL Exam Fees

Effective with the May 2001 Exam (Exam 55), anyone who is eligible for Montgomery GI Bill; or Veterans Educational Assistance Program (VEAP)/Dependents Educational Assistance Program (DEAP) benefits can have his/her Certified Professional Logistician (CPL) program examination fees (both initial and retake) reimbursed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

The reimbursement arrangement was a result of a recent change in Federal law related to tests for professional certification and licensure. SOLE’s CPL certification program was the first in Maryland to be approved for coverage under the new law. The approval, granted in July 2001 by the Maryland Higher Education Commission as agent for the VA (and made retroactive to the May 2001 exam), applies to all eligible veterans/dependents, regardless of state of residence.

The approved categories and fees are:

  • Certified Professional Logistician Examination, non-SOLE member - $275.00
  • Certified Professional Logistician Examination, SOLE member - $125.00
  • CPL Retake Exam - $50.00

(Qualified individuals should note that the VA can pay only for the cost of the test, and not other fees connected with obtaining the certification.)

Individuals who qualify for the benefits must first take the exam, then apply to the VA for reimbursement. To be reimbursed, the individual should send a copy of his/her test results to the VA office that handles his/her benefits. The VA’s Internet site - www.gibill.va.gov/education/inquiry.htm - should be checked before the exam is taken.

Those who have never applied for VA benefits will also need to submit either VA Form 22-1990 ( to be completed by veterans or those on active duty); or VA Form 5490 (to be completed by the eligible child or spouse). These forms may be filled out on line at www.va.gov. Alternatively, the forms may be requested by calling the VA’s toll-free telephone number, 888-442-4551. (The VA’s toll-free telephone number for the hearing impaired is 800-829-4833.)
