Eligibility and Applying for Veterans Benefits

You must be admitted to the university and registered for courses in a degree-seeking program in order to be certified for veterans’ and dependent education benefits.

Eligibility for veteran and dependent education benefits is determined by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). http://benefits.va.gov/gibill/

All veteran students who wish to receive educational benefits must complete a Veteran’s Administration Benefits Application Form. Use the Vets.gov to apply for VA benefits.
