The Process

Step 1: Apply for your Veterans Educational Benefits.

  • Apply for your Veterans Education Benefits as soon as possible. Once you have completed your application, you will receive a Certificate of Eligibility. You will also need to request a copy of your DD-214 form from the National Archives.
  • Submit your Certificate of Eligibility and a copy of your DD-214 form to the Office of Financial Aid.

Step 2:  Determine your student classification.

  • Each student classification has a unique admissions process.
