New Students Using VA Benefits

After you are enrolled in classes:

  • Complete the Enrollment Certification Request Form.
    • This form must be completed prior to the start of every semester that you are enrolled in.
  • Complete the Promissory Note if you need to defer payment of your tuition & fees while waiting for your VA education benefits.
  • Complete the Yellow Ribbon Application if you are being charged out of state or WUE tuition and are a Chapter 33 student with 100% eligibility.
    • If eligible, you may be able to get a portion or all of your remaining tuition and fees covered.
  • Complete the Dual Objective Request Form if you wish to work towards more than one program of study at a time.
    • Students using VA benefits are generally approved for only one program of study at a time. There are exceptions for students pursuing two programs at the same school if they can provide reasonable justification that both programs apply to a single career field.
    • The dual objective may include degrees, certifications, or programs on different professional/technical levels. Students need to provide the justification and academic advisors need to agree with their rationale.
