VA Process

NSU Process for Veteran Benefits

  1. Veterans should complete the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' Veterans On-Line Application (VONAPP). The student will receive a Certificate of Eligibility (COE), which is a written notification from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs regarding his or her eligibility for veteran education benefits. Students should then submit a copy of the Certification of Eligibility and their Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (Form: DD-214) via fax to NSU at (954) 262-3966 or via email to vabenefits@nova.edu. Students may use our Forms Matrix to determine what form to use.
  2. Veterans are responsible for ensuring that all requirements for their admission to their VA approved NSU academic program have been met. To ensure this, veterans can contact their academic college, school, or center.
  3. The NSU Veteran Certifying Official will send an electronic enrollment certification to the Department of Veteran Affairs, once a student's forms have been received and enrollment into courses at NSU has been confirmed.
  4. Veterans will receive confirmation via email from NSU once the enrollment certification has been sent.
  5. Veterans will receive an award letter from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs once their eligibility has been certified.
