GI Bill / Veteran’s Benefits
Veterans Affairs Education Benefit Programs
The Virginia University of Integrative Medicine’s degree-granting programs have been approved for the training of veterans and eligible individuals (GI Bill). Any honorably discharged veteran of the US Armed Forces is eligible to receive educational benefits by submitting an application to the School Certifying Official (SCO) who is located in the University’s Administrative Office.
For additional information, please contact the VA office at toll-free number (888) 442-4551 or visit the VA website: www.va.gov
How to Apply for Benefits
Veteran Affairs (VA) students must file an application for Certificate of Eligibility (COE). Students who haven’t received VA benefits before must file an original application (veterans VAF 22-1990; dependents VAF 22-5490). Students who have received VA benefits before must file a Request for Change of Program or Place of Training (veterans VAF 22-1995; dependents VAF 22-5495).
