Anderson University is proud to partner with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in assisting our military veterans in obtaining their education. Our intent is that you are well informed about the process for receiving any educational benefits for which you are qualified.
Anderson's role in the process is to inform the VA that a beneficiary has begun enrollment at the university in order for pre-determined benefits to commence. Therefore, your initial action is to apply for possible benefits through the VA. The university has no access to your military records and cannot determine your eligibility. If you have any questions regarding your eligibility to receive benefits, you should contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at 1(888) 442-4551 or visit their website at www.va.gov.
Apply for benefits through the VA either by completing an application obtained from the VA or by applying online at www.gibill.va.gov.
Once you have completed your application for benefits, your next step is to inform Anderson University of your plans to enroll. The certifying official is located in Financial Aid Planning in the Rice Building.
Contact the certifying official at Anderson University for instructions about obtaining certification from the university. The phone number is (864) 231-2072 and the email is email@example.com.
The certifying official will handle the rest of the process, and unless you break enrollment, you will be certified at the beginning of each subsequent term.
Keep in mind that you should contact AU's certifying official if:
- You break enrollment
- You change your major
- You drop a course
- Your address or any other permanent information changes
This information must be promptly reported to the VA by the university, and failure to do so may result in a disruption of your receiving benefits. Thank you for choosing Anderson University to continue your education. We are honored to serve our military veterans. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at (864) 231-2072 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
