Application Procedures and Requirements

Students wishing to utilize their VA benefits must complete an application for VA benefits. The application can be done on-line at www.gibill.va.gov. Students are encouraged to apply at least 8-10 weeks prior to registration for the semester they intend to enter college. Students must also possess a high school diploma or GED and be enrolled in a specific curriculum program in order to receive VA benefits.

All admissions requirements must be met before the enrollment certification can be processed for VA benefits. All previous college work must be received and evaluated by the registrar.

Certain other requirements may also apply. Please contact one of the Veterans' Certifying Officials to inquire about course restrictions and other information.
