The Certifying Official for veterans' education benefits under the GI Bill is within the Office of Admissions. Each semester, veteran-students must submit the required documents to the Certifying Official in order to receive their available benefits.
To register for benefits:
- Apply to the Veterans Administration for approval using the online application found at www.gibill.va.gov.
- Consult the VA for determining which benefit is best for you.
- Register for classes and complete the Veterans Certification and Deferment forms and submit these to the Veterans Coordinator. Both forms are required each semester for which you register.
Tuition Deferments are available for all veterans receiving benefits under the various chapters of the GI Bill and who have no outstanding financial obligation to the College. The deferment is effective until the end of the semester; however you are responsible for tuition and fees, if you are denied benefits. Complete information is available on the Veterans Benefits website.
The "Stars & Stripes" Lounge, located in the Rollins Center, provides a welcoming space for our veterans to study, relax, or network. For more information, please visit our website at www.bucks.edu/admissions/vabenefits.php.
