CBU Veterans Information
We have over 500 students utilizing their GI Bill during the 2021-2022 academic year semester and graduated 98 VA students and dependents this past academic year!!
The Financial Aid Office maintain records for each identified veteran. A record of transfer work is kept on file and the Veterans Affairs (VA) is notified of the transfer work accepted for each veteran.
At the beginning of their first term registered for courses at CBU, new student veterans and dependents must provide a written request to the CBU School Certifying Official (SCO) to initiate reporting of verification of enrollment and academic progress to the appropriate VA office. Continuing students are not required to submit written request to the SCO. Any changes in enrollment or attendance should be reported to the SCO. Satisfactory progress must be maintained as specified in the Scholastic Regulations Section under Academic Policies.
Student veterans/dependents requesting their classes be certified under Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 GI Bill®) are required to submit a certificate of eligibility from the VA to the SCO. Student veterans under Chapter 31 Veteran Readiness & Employment (VR&E) counselor should submit an approved authorization via Tungsten Network directly to the SCO. For a period of ninety (90) days from the beginning of each term, students under Chapters 31 or 33 will not incur any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or be required to secure additional financial resources to meet the student’s financial obligation which results from delayed VA disbursement.
The Veterans Resource Center is designed to be a place our student veterans/dependents can both obtain administrative support and just relax and study. It is strategically located next to the US Army Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) office and Office of Student Accounts. The Veterans Resource Center is co-located with the Office of Student Success to provide ready access to tutoring, testing, and Disability Services.
