Before You Apply for VA Benefits
The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) requires each applicant utilizing their VA educational benefits to be formally accepted into an approved curriculum (Program of Study) before initial certification of attendance can be sent to the DVA.
Normally, formal acceptance is achieved by completion of the following:
- NSU admissions application for the program you are attempting to attend (this should be completed and submitted before any other steps are taken).
- Submission of official high school transcripts, official copies of GED scores or Adult High School Diploma (if required).
- Submission of official transcripts from all other colleges attended.
- Any other documentation required by the program you are applying for.
All veteran students beginning or transferring to a Nova Southeastern University (NSU) program who wish to receive veterans educational benefits must complete the required Department of Veterans Affair (VA) forms. Applications can be submitted online using the Veterans On-line Application (VONAPP) system.
