Enrollment Certification with the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs

Students who are eligible for Veteran’s Benefits and wish to have their Brandeis University enrollment certified with the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) should complete the Request for VA Certification form each semester that they wish to be certified. If you are a new student, or if your certificate of eligibility has expired, you will be asked to upload a new certificate of eligibility before submitting the request form. In lieu of a certificate of eligibility, a "Statement of Benefits" obtained from the VA website will also be accepted. Students eligible for CH 31 are not required to upload a certificate of eligibility, but should still complete the Request for VA Certification form each semester. Any questions or concerns can be directed to Sandra Fallon-Ludwig in the Registrar’s Office at 781-736-2025 or sfallon@brandeis.edu.

Please be aware that certification of your enrollment with the VA does not guarantee payment by the VA. It is the student's responsibility to review their benefits and entitlement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
