The Department of Veterans Affairs will make the final determination of eligibility based on official service records, evidence submitted by the student, and all applicable veterans’ laws.

Getting Started

Once you know which benefit you will be using, you are ready to enroll in school. Print out the corresponding paperwork that applies to you. Keep copies of everything for your own records.

Next Steps

  • Apply to Huntingdon College.
  • Submit final transcripts for evaluation.
  • Submit your Certificate of Eligibility to Huntingdon’s School Certifying Official (SCO).
  • Submit Huntingdon College’s Institutional Veteran Certification Information Sheet [pdf].
  • Complete registration for classes upon acceptance to Huntingdon College. We cannot certify your enrollment until you are actually enrolled.
  • Students receiving VA benefits from Chapters 30, 1607, and 1606 are required to verify your attendance on the last day of each month by calling (877) 823-2378 or be going to WAVE (our recommendation).

Contact your SCO of any possible major or schedule changes to determine how these changes will affect your VA benefits.

Veteran Shopping Sheet

The Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020 requires educational institutions to make certain disclosures to students using federal military and/or VA education benefits. To ensure compliance with the law, we have developed the Shopping Sheet Information (pdf) for VA benefit recipients. You must review and obtain a copy for your records.
