VA Education Benefits for Continuing Students Application

Prior to the upcoming academic year we ask students who have been eligible for VA Education Benefits in prior years to complete a brief application to provide information on remaining benefit eligibility. We will use this information to put together an estimate of your Post 9/11 GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon Awards for the upcoming year. 

2020-21 VA Education Benefits for Continuing Students Application

Students who choose to utilize their Post-9/11 GI Bill® and/or Yellow Ribbon benefits should still complete the FAFSA application as receiving VA benefits does not impact a student’s eligibility for Federal Student Aid such as Federal Direct Loans and Pell Grants.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
