Federal Education Benefits

Chapter Information

GI Bill ® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. Government website.

All students must complete the VA Benefit Request Form at the beginning of each semester, once they have registered for classes. This is how you notify our TTUHSC VA Certifying Official that you are registered and wish to use your benefits for the semester. Please note that it is the students responsibility to submit and verify receipt of the form every semester or term. Your enrollment certification will not be submitted or processed without the form. Late certifications will result in delay of benefit payments, so it is vital that your certification request is submitted in a timely manner.
