To receive benefits under the GI Bill®, you must first apply to Department of Veterans Affairs and complete the necessary application available at the VA GI Bill® website.
At UAFS, student veterans can meet one-on-one with the VA School Certifying Official to find out more about benefits, process paperwork, and certifying enrollment. The veterans coordinator’s office is located in Financial Aid on the second floor of the Smith-Pendergraft Campus Center.
