Certification of Benefits

When registering for classes, keep in mind that the VA will not pay for any classes that do not count toward your major. Be aware that the VA periodically checks all applicants to ensure that the courses being taken are relevant to the student's declared major. It is ultimately the student’s responsibility to register for the correct courses and report changes before incurring an overpayment or possibly an underpayment. VA regulations prohibit payment for repeated courses ("A" through "D” grades) or for courses that are not required for your approved degree/program.

Certification will begin after you have submitted the Veterans’ Benefits form (each semester of enrollment) and upon receipt of all required documents. Veterans will only be certified for courses that are required for an approved degree/program. Each student is advised to obtain a copy of their curriculum sheet and refer to it prior to each registration. VA takes 6 - 8 weeks to process an enrollment certification. Please be timely when submitting your request. The Veterans Benefits form is located on RAIN under Student Forms.
