Veterans' Affairs Educational Benefits

We assist the Department of Veterans Affairs through the Veterans Education Benefits Office by providing certification for education benefits under Title 38, U.S. Code: Chapter 30 (Montgomery GI Bill), Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation), Chapter 32 (Post Vietnam Era), Chapter 33 (Post 9-11 GI Bill), Chapter 35 (Dependents Educational Assistance), Chapter 1607, and Title 10 U.S. Code: Chapter 1606 (Selected Reserve Members).

If you are eligible for any of these benefits, you should contact the us as soon as possible, prior to the expected date of enrollment. When you apply you should apply in a degree-seeking major before applying for veterans’ education benefits. 12 credits is considered full time for Fall, Spring, or Summer semesters. You must notify the Registrar's Office of any change of address, major or enrollment status.
