The VA Certifying Official at Sacred Heart University is located in the Registrar’s Office in the Main Academic Building. If you are a new student and would like to start receiving benefits, the first step is to start the application process with the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). Details regarding the application process can be found at gibill.va.gov. VA Education Counselors can also be reached by calling 1-888-442-4551. The VA is the best point of contact for questions concerning benefit payment amounts and specific eligibility. Once the VA application process is complete, the following paperwork will need to be submitted to the School Certifying Official via mail, fax, email attachment, or in person:
- Certificate of Eligibility (COE) - After you have applied and been approved for benefits, you will be issued a Certificate of Eligibility from the VA.
- DD-214 Form - Member 4 Copy to verify Serviceperson’s discharge, if applicable.
Transfer students should submit the correct forms and a Request for Change of Program or Place of Training to the School Certifying Official.
