VA Process

NSU Process for Veteran Benefits

Important:
Avoid Delays and Overpayments

Notify vabenefits@nova.edu promptly if you are changing your enrollment credit hours or withdrawing from school. Failure to do so can lead to a delay in delivery of your educational payments or cause overpayments.

  1. Apply for education benefits at vets.gov. Eligible students will receive a Certificate of Eligibility (COE), which is a written notification from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs regarding eligibility for veteran education benefits.
  2. Submit copies of the COE and the Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (Form: DD-214) to NSU via email to vabenefits@nova.edu. Use our Forms Matrix to determine which forms to use.
  3. 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 college's admissions department.
  4. 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. 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.
