Veterans' Certification

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). For more information about VA educational benefits please visit the official Veteran Affairs website at

The VA determines student eligibility to receive educational benefits.  Students must apply for benefits with the VA before their eligibility can be determined.

Certification depends upon your VA determined eligibility, enrollment status and program of study.  Veteran certifications are processed at Villanova within the Office of the Registrar and the Office of Continuing Studies, by one of our 2 School Certifying Officials (SCO).  SCO contact information is provided below.  Please notify the proper certifying official of any enrollment changes.

To check on the status of your application, remaining entitlement, or any other general questions, please contact the Department of Veteran Affairs educational hotline: 1-888-GI-BILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) or submit a question electronically through Ask a QuestionVillanova SCOs cannot provide advisement or counseling related to Veteran benefits. 

Villanova University participates in the Post 9/11 GI Bill® Yellow Ribbon program.
