To file for education benefits with the VA, veterans, service members, reservists, and spouses/dependents of a veteran may use the Veterans On-Line Application (VONAPP) website. Visit www.vabenefits.vba.va.gov to file a claim. Please retain a copy for your files.
After completing the VONAPP (allow 2-3 weeks for processing), you will receive a “Certificate of Eligibility” letter in the mail from the Department of Veterans Affairs, which you must submit to NewSchool’s Financial Aid Office along with NewSchool’s institutional Student Bill of Rights and Authorization for VA Enrollment Certification forms.
Veterans are subject to the same rules and regulations that govern other students. Absences and tardiness will be reported to the VA in accordance with current VA directives. NewSchool maintains a written record of previous education and training of the veteran or eligible person, grants appropriate credit for equivalent coursework, shortens the training period proportionately, and provides notifications to the student and the Department of Veterans Affairs. A veteran or eligible person who, at the end of two consecutive quarters on probation, has failed to earn a grade point average of 2.0 will have his/her VA educational benefits terminated.
Current VA directives prohibit the payment of benefits for any period of training designated as “make-up time.”
