Initiating Veterans Benefits at SGU

  • Student should compare VA education benefits and review payment rates by utilizing the Comparison Tool
  • Apply for benefit through the VA using the Veterans Online Application (VONAPP)
  • Submit Certificate of Eligibility to an SGU School Certifying Official (see contact information below).

 

Receiving Veterans Benefits at SGU

After you have initiated your Veterans Benefits at SGU, a School Certifying Official will  contact you at the beginning of each term. Once your enrollment has already been certified for a term in the current VA year, you will not be automatically certified for another term, unless you request otherwise.  You will receive an automatic electronic notification from the VA after your enrollment has been certified. Payment of benefit can take up to two to four weeks after it is certified. Eligibility and payment amounts are determined by the VA and not by SGU. Please access the following link for the VA's Rate Tables for the various benefit programs: http://www.benefits.va.gov/GIBILL/resources/benefits_resources/rate_tables.asp
