Continuing and Returning GI Bill ESU Students
You must download, complete and submit the Veterans Information Sheet to our office
Submit forms well in advance of the first day of courses
For each semester that you want to have your enrollment certified to the VA, you must download, complete and submit the Veterans Information Sheet to the Office of Financial Aid, Scholarships & Veteran Services. This form requires an advisor’s signature to verify that the enrolled courses meet requirements in your degree curriculum.
It is strongly encouraged that students submit this form well in advance of the first day of courses for each semester.
Course schedules will also be reviewed by the School Certifying Official. To be certified to the VA, your classes must be required for your degree curriculum.
When your enrollment is certified to the VA, you will receive an email confirmation of receipt from the Veterans Administration.
Reporting Course Changes to the VA
Once enrolled, any change in your schedule should be reported as soon as possible to the School Certifying Official. Changes in enrollment can result in an overpayment that will be determined by the VA.
While you are using VA Education benefits at ESU, the VA will only allow certification for courses that apply towards your declared degree program. For more information, click here.
Generally, enrollment in online and other distance learning classes can be certified to the VA. However, the VA does not allow certification for enrollment in distance learning for remedial classes.
Additionally, enrollment in distance learning classes can affect your eligibility for Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) under the Post 9/11 GI Bill.
