To receive education benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) students must first apply
to the VA and receive a Certificate of Eligibility or obtain a Notice of Basic Eligibility (Guard or
Reserves). A copy of the certificate must be provided to the Certifying official of the Registrar’s Office.
This will serve as the official notification to initiate a student VA file. Student enrollments will be
regularly assessed and certified online at the end of the add/drop period for each session.
