The Department of Veteran's Affairs determines the eligibility to receive educational assistance benefits for students. Benefits depend on your student status, i.e. full time, part time or less than part time. To apply for Veteran's Benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill please come to the Registrar's Office located in Room 102 Marts Hall during normal business hours. Melissa Weber, Veteran's Certifying Official, will be there to assist you.

To check on the status of your application for benefits or enrollment certification forms, time remaining for benefits, or any other general benefits questions please contact the Veteran's Affairs Education Department at 1-888-GI BILL 1 (1-888-442-4551).
