Veterans Information

Veterans Information

If you are a veteran and are eligible for the GI Bill, you should apply for your benefits online through the VA website. If you do not have web access, you should contact the Student Records and Financial Services Office for a paper form. You will need to supply a copy of your DD214 or certificate of eligibility to the Student Records and Financial Services Office. Staff will then supply the Veterans’ Administration with the enrollment certification that indicates you are a student so you can receive your monthly benefits.

The following procedures to monitor attendance have been approved by the State Education Department Bureau of Veterans’ Education:

  • Veterans are required to attend classes in order to receive educational benefits.
  • Veterans receiving benefits must complete the VA School Certification form each semester they wish to be certified for benefits. Furthermore, veterans must contact the certifying official in the Student Records and Financial Services Office to ensure paperwork is properly completed whenever they add or drop a course, change their major, withdraw from the college, and/or are enrolled in courses that have nonpunitive grades ("S" or "U").
