VA Application Process

Certification
Once you have your classes approved by Academic Advising, bring the 'Request for VA Certification' form you and your advisor sign to the Financial Aid Office and ask that it be given to the VA Coordinator. He will then verify your enrollment and tuition payment and electronically certify your enrollment to VA. This 'Certification' process must be repeated each semester.
