Veterans

Applying for VA Educational Benefits

The admissions process and enrolling in classes must be complete before the university can certify your enrollment; however, you can apply for VA benefits before admittance to the university or enrolling in classes. This is strongly encouraged because it may take a few weeks for the VA to process your application.

If you’re a Service member, Veteran, or family member, you can apply your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) by visiting the following link.

https://www.vets.gov/education/apply-for-education-benefits/

The submission of your application will result in the issuance of a Certificate of Eligibility from the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs. If you have questions or need assistance completing the application, contact the VA Education Call Center at 1.888.442.4551. You may also utilize the “Ask a Question” option on their site.


Certifying Process

Certification is the school’s way of notifying VA that you are enrolled and wish to be certified. Changes in enrollment may impact or delay your eligibility. It is the student’s responsibility for compliance with all laws and regulations controlling eligibility and receipt of veterans’ benefits. Tuition and fees are submitted to the VA via the VA Once website based off the start and end date of each Module registered.

King University is only responsible for forwarding the student’s claim for benefits and certification of enrollment to the Department of Veterans Affairs, and that further processing on claim of benefits is controlled solely by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Chapter and percentage of benefits is based off the time of service and other factors evaluated by Veteran Affairs.

The Benefits certified by the University’s Certifying Official (SCO) are as follows:
