How to apply

Every term, all students who are eligible to receive federal veterans' educational benefits (new and continuing) must complete the following university form:

First-time use of benefits

If you have never used your Veterans' Affairs educational benefits, you will need to provide documentation of your eligibility to receive them.

Required documents:

  • Chapter 33: Post-9/11 GI Bill — copy of Certificate of Eligibility.
  • Chapter 33: Yellow Ribbon Program — the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 GI Bill. This program allows institutions of higher learning in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to partially or fully fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the established thresholds under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. 
  • Chapter 35: Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance — copy of Certificate of Eligibility.
