The Department of Higher Education is designated by law as the State Approving Agency (SAA) responsible for approving and supervising programs at educational institutions and training establishments in Massachusetts which offer education and training to veterans and other eligible persons under the Veterans Education Assistance Program.

These programs must have SAA approval before veterans and other eligible persons may receive educational benefits (GI Bill) from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs under the authority of Title 38, U.S. Code and Chapter 1606 Title 10. At the core of the SAA's responsibilities are program approval, annual inspections, and ensuring corrective action when necessary.
