Continue Using Your VA Benefits

To keep your VA benefits active, submit your certification request each semester after registering for classes.


Additionally you may…

  • Meet with one of our VA Certifying Officials to discuss education benefit payment issues, how adding/dropping classes will impact your education benefits, or other concerns
  • Update your benefit information with the VA
  • Download a list of local and national veterans' resources (coming soon)

Contact and Resources

Education benefits through the VA and the GI Bill are administered through collaborations between Veterans Affairs and colleges and universities. An individual’s specific VA benefits vary case by case. There are people and resources at both the VA and FLC to support you in the process.
