Benefits

There are numerous education and training benefits available to Veterans and Service Members. Spouses and family members may also be eligible for education and training assistance. In fact, 25 percent of those benefitting from VA’s education programs are non-Veterans. Some may find that they are eligible for more than one benefit, or that one program is more suited to certain education and training goals than another.

Learn about these and other education and training programs administered by VA:

The Post-9/11 GI Bill® (also known as Chapter 33 benefits)

Began on August 1, 2009. Eligibility may be established using active duty service performed on or after 9-11-01. You may apply online by visiting www.va.gov  or you may apply in the Office of Veteran Affairs on campus. For more information please visit:

View information about the new G.I. Bill on these two websites:
(Official Site)  Benefits.va.gov or Military.com

Please be advised that those students who have elected to apply for the Post 9/11 GI Bill (Ch. 33) the Veteran Center on campus will require a copy of the COE(Certificate of Eligibility), DD214 (Member 4 form), and/or VA form 22-1990. This will be necessary in order to process your future awards. It is suggested that those documents be turned in when you are submitting your VA certification request.

All Post 9/11 GI Bill recipients registering for classes MUST complete a VA deferment (promissory note) at our office every semester. This is important so that your classes will not be dropped on the tuition and fee payment due dates.

If you are called to active duty you will need to contact this Office as well as the Business Office of your status.  A copy of your military orders will be necessary to process your withdrawal properly.
