I think I have veteran’s education benefits. How can I find out?

The first step is to apply for benefits through the VA website: www.gibill.va.gov. If you are the veteran, you can research your best options, and apply via the online VONAPP application. If you are a dependent, your parent will need to apply and list you as a recipient of their benefits. As the beneficiary, you will also have to apply for the educational benefit.

What’s a Letter of Eligibility and why does my VA counselor want to see it?

Once your application has been submitted and reviewed by the VA, they will mail you a Letter of Eligibility. You must provide a copy of this letter to your school. It lists your file number, chapter, length and percentage of benefits. This is important information used to determine your financial aid and VA benefits at your institution.

Are you a Yellow Ribbon school? How does it work?

Yes, Schreiner University is a Yellow Ribbon school. We have committed to providing more than $4,000 per student in scholarship funds to any eligible VA recipient.

Yellow Ribbon awards and any Schreiner merit aid are both tuition specific. Students on VA benefits and Yellow Ribbon are not eligible to receive merit aid within the same semester.

Yellow Ribbon is for undergraduate students only – not veterans in graduate programs.

I qualify for Hazelwood. Will this be accepted?

Because Schreiner University is a private institution, Hazlewood is not offered. We accept the GI Bill and Post 9/11 benefits. When receiving benefits, other tuition specific scholarships, such as merit aid, are not applicable.

What other Veteran scholarships are available?
What’s a degree plan and why do I need one?

You may complete your first semester without submitting a degree plan. However, to receive VA benefits past the first term, you must have a signed degree plan on file with the VA coordinator and the registrar. This degree plan outlines what courses are eligible for VA funding. Courses not on your degree plan will not be certified.

How do I get my military transcripts? Why do you need them?

All veterans utilizing VA educational benefits are required to submit military transcripts. These transcripts are evaluated for potential college credit which will save you time and money.

AARTS Transcripts required for Soldiers and Veterans of the Army, Army National Guard, and US Army Reserve

SMART Transcripts required for Navy and Marine Corps: Active Duty, Reserve and Veterans
