Dependents Educational Benefits
Chapter 35 Eligible Dependents
Step 1- Create an account
Create an account or log into your www.VA.gov account and apply to use your VA benefits. This will let the VA know you are going to school and generates a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to be mailed to you. When you receive your COE, we will need a copy for your VA file.
Step 2- Meet with a VA Specialist
Meet with a VA Specialist in the Veterans Center of Excellence, PUB 015
Step 3- Meet with an academic advisor
Meet with an academic advisor to complete a degree worksheet. This will help you know what classes to take for your degree and is a required document for your VA file.
Step 4- Enroll in classes
Once you turn in a copy of your degree worksheet to firstname.lastname@example.org you may enroll in classes
Step 5- Submit a Certificate Request Form
After enrolling in classes each term, submit a Certification Request Form (CRF) so we know you are attending school and we can certify to the VA that you are in school.
Step 6- Submit proof of attendance
During the first week of the term, submit a Proof of Attendance form.
Elegible dependents will need:
- Chapter 35 Certificate of Eligibility from the VA
