We provide the following policies and resources to help military students succeed at Virginia Commonwealth University:
All students receiving benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs must submit the Request for Certification to Military Student Services each semester, including summer sessions. Our office certifies enrollment to the VA for processing. The VA determines eligibility for education assistance in all cases.
Students receiving benefits under Ch. 30 or Ch. 1606 of the Montgomery GI Bill must verify their enrollment to the VA each month on the Department of Veterans Affairs W.A.V.E. website.
Adding, dropping or withdrawing from classes can impact on VA benefits eligibility. Any changes to enrollment must be documented through the Request for Certification and submitted to Military Student Services.
For tutoring assistance, call the Campus Learning Center at (804) 827-8108. The GI Bill also provides supplemental tutoring assistance for students enrolled at least half time who are falling behind in an approved course.
For questions about this program, contact the GI Bill helpline at (888) 442-4551.
Joining a military student organization is an excellent way to meet other veterans at VCU:
