Important Notes About Using Your VA Benefits

Each service member on active duty should check in with his or her education office to discuss options for using their VA benefits for our programs. If you are preparing to discharge from the military, you might want to speak with a transition specialist, if one is available where you are stationed.

Before we will be able to enroll you into one of our programs, there are several steps to follow with the VA to apply for your GI Bill benefits. Some of these are outlined here, but for complete details on the process, click here.
