The following is a step-by-step guide explaining how to apply for VA benefits. In all cases, you or your parent need to first apply for the Post 9/11 GI Bill through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in order to receive your VA Certificate of Eligibility. Begin this process as soon as you receive your acceptance letter from AUP.
Once you have received the VA Certificate of Eligibility, it will be clear how much of tuition, fees, housing and books will be covered. The VA Certificate of Eligibility should also be sent to the AUP Certifying Official, before the first day of classes, in order to be eligible for the Veterans Scholarship. It is advised that you complete the FAFSA, as well as AUP Financial Aid, in order to have a complete picture of the funding that will be available.
