Veterans Certification Request
Do you have further questions about veteran education benefits?
Regent University is committed to helping you with your veteran’s college benefits. It only certifies your enrollment and academic progress. All questions concerning eligibility and payment should be directed to the Department of Veterans Affairs at 1.888.442.4551
(1-888-GI-BILL1) or www.gibill.va.gov.
Current and former officers of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and United States Public Health Service may be eligible to receive VA Benefits under the Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill® or the Post-9/11 GI Bill®.
Commissioned officers of the Public Health Service (PHS) and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Association (NOAA) who served at least 90 days of active duty service after September 10, 2001, will qualify for the new Post-9/11 GI Bill®. To qualify for the full benefit, individuals must have served at least 3 years of active duty after September 10, 2001.
Step 1: Determine eligibility
To determine eligibility for either the Montgomery GI Bill® or the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, please contact:
Step 2: Apply for VA Benefits
Please follow the instructions on our Application Process page.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill® provides financial support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service after September 10, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill®.
Approved training under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® includes graduate and undergraduate degrees, vocational/technical training, on-the-job training, flight training, correspondence training, licensing and national testing programs, entrepreneurship training, and tutorial assistance. All training programs must be approved for GI Bill® benefits.
This benefit provides up to 36 months of education benefits, generally benefits are payable for 15 years following your release from active duty. The Post-9/11 GI Bill® also offers some service members the opportunity to transfer their GI Bill® to dependents.
Some of the benefits the Post-9/11 GI Bill® will pay include:
Beginning August 1, 2011, break (or interval pay) will no longer be payable under Post-9/11 GI Bill® except during periods your school is closed as a result of an Executive Order of the President or an emergency (such as a natural disaster or strike). For example, if your Fall term ends on December 15th and your Spring term begins January 10th, your January housing allowance will cover 15 days in December and your February housing allowance will cover 21 days in January.
Chapter 33, Yellow Ribbon Program
Regent University is committed to veteran’s education. It has elected to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to your GI Bill® entitlement. Institutions that voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed. The Department of Veterans Affairs will match that amount and issue payment directly to the institution.
Only veterans, utilizing the Post 9-11 GI Bill® (Ch. 33), and entitled to the maximum benefit rate (based on service requirements) or their designated transferees may receive this funding.
Active duty servicemembers and their spouses are not eligible for this program (child transferees of active duty servicemembers may be eligible if the servicemember is qualified at the 100% rate).
Therefore, you may be eligible if:

Transfer of Post-9/11 GI-Bill® Benefits to Dependents (TEB)
Allows servicemembers to transfer unused benefits to their spouses or dependent children
Any member of the Armed Forces (active duty or Selected Reserve, officer or enlisted), who is eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, (Ch. 33), and:
Such transfer must be requested and approved while the member is in the Armed Forces.
The Montgomery GI Bill® (MGIB) is available for those who enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces. MGIB encompasses both the Montgomery GI Bill®-Active Duty (Chapter 30) and The Montgomery GI Bill®-Selected Reserve (Chapter 1606). Under Chapter 30, Active Duty members enroll and pay $100 per month for 12 months; and are then entitled to receive a monthly education benefit once they have completed a minimum service obligation. Under Chapter 1606, a reservist must be actively drilling and have a 6-year obligation in the Selected Reserve to be eligible. Students are paid directly by the VA on a monthly basis while attending courses. See Pay Rates for more information. Students must verify their enrollment on WAVE at the end of each month in order to receive their benefit payment.
Your eligibility is determined by the Department of Defense based on your total time of activated service. Students are paid directly by the VA on a monthly basis while attending courses. See Pay Rates for more information. Students must verify their enrollment on WAVE at the end of each month in order to receive their benefit payment.
The Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) VetSuccess Program is authorized by Congress under Title 38, Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 31. It is sometimes referred to as the Chapter 31 program. The VetSuccess program assists Veterans with service-connected disabilities to prepare for, find, and keep suitable jobs. For Veterans with service-connected disabilities so severe that they cannot immediately consider work, VetSuccess offers services to improve their ability to live as independently as possible.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill® is for individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days.
Applying for your Certificate of Eligibility (COE)
Note: The Certificate of Eligibility is sent via postal mail services, “snail mail”, and could take anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks for receipt. Be sure you include the pages that show your percentage and months of eligibility. Please plan accordingly.
Processing your Benefit
Transfer Students under Post-9/11 GI Bill®
Using a transferred Post-9/11 benefit is a multi-step process:
Note: Your enrollment information will not post on WAVE until the certification has been processed by the V.A. Verification will need to be completed on the first day of every month during the term to release the pay for the previous month.
Enrollment Status for Students Receiving VA Benefits
Note: The VA training times indicated below are for the individual enrollment periods only. Each sub-term must be considered individually and cannot be combined with other enrollment periods for the assignment of a training time. These training times are designed for Veteran Affairs benefits only, and should not be used to calculate course loads for financial aid or outside scholarships. For all other purposes (i.e., confirmation of enrollments for lenders, insurance companies, etc.), enrollment status is determined not by individual enrollment periods, but by the entire semester.
Undergraduate Training Time
|Undergraduate 8 – week Sessions
(Sessions A, B, C, D, E, & F subterms)
|Full time||3/4 time||1/2 time
(*60% for Ch 33)
|<1/2 time||1/4 time|
|Undergraduate 15 – week Session
Fall, Spring, & Summer terms
|Full time||3/4 time||1/2 time||<1/2 time||1/4 time|
|Undergraduate – Summer||9||6||5||3||2|
Mandi, who is an undergraduate student, is enrolled in 3 credits online in Session A and 3 credits on campus in Session B. She will be considered 1/2 time to the VA for the entire semester because the VA training time for an eight week course is 1/2 time for three hours and full-time for six hours (see the charts above).
*MHA Pay: Mandi would earn 60% MHA for both terms. Because an 8-week undergraduate session is a non-standard length term, the VA rates 3 credit hours as 60% training time. Mandi would earn 60% of the online MHA for Session A and 60% of the residential MHA for Session B.
Ryan, who is an undergraduate student, is enrolled in 3 credits online in Session C, 3 credits online in Session D, and 3 credits on campus in the 15-week session, all in the same semester. He will be considered 3/4 time for the entire semester because the terms overlap. Ryan would be at least half-time for the semester because he is in 3 credits in both the A and B terms, but he is also in a 15-week term course, so he can add that training time to the 1/2 time. The training time for 3 credits in a 15-week term course, is ¼ time. When the VA processes the different enrollment periods, they will see that the 15-week term course overlaps the A and B terms. The VA will add the terms together, giving Ryan a status of 3/4 time for the semester.
*MHA Pay: Ryan would earn 80% of the full residential MHA for the entire semester. Because the 15-week term course is on-campus and it overlaps both the C term and D term, it satisfies the on-campus requirement for both terms.
Graduate Training Time
|Graduate 8 – week Sessions
(Sessions A, B, C, D, E, & F subterms)
|Full time||3/4 time||1/2 time||<1/2 time||1/4 time|
|Graduate – Summer||3||N/A||2||1||N/A|
|Graduate 15 – week Session
Fall, Spring, & Summer terms
|Full time||3/4 time||1/2 time||<1/2 time||1/4 time|
|Graduate – Summer||6||5||3||2||1|
|Juris Doctor ONLY: 16 – week Session
Fall, Spring, & Summer terms
|Full time||3/4 time||1/2 time||<1/2 time||1/4 time|
|JD – Summer||6||5||3||2||1|
Mandi, who is a master’s student, is enrolled in 2 credits online in Session C and 3 credits on campus in Session D. She will be considered ½ time to the VA for Session C and ¾ time to the VA for Session D.
*MHA Pay: Mandi would not earn MHA at all for Session C because she must be more than half time to earn MHA. Mandi would earn 80% of the full residential MHA for Session D.
Rebecca, who is a master’s student, is enrolled in 6 credits in Session C (3 credits on-campus and 3 credits online) and 6 credits in Session D (3 credits on-campus and 3 credits online). She will be considered full time to the VA for the entire semester because the VA training time for an eight week course is full time for six hours (see the charts above).
*MHA Pay: Rebecca would earn the full residential MHA for the entire semester, because she is full time in each term, and she has at least one on-campus course in each term (see MHA section below.)
Leslie, who is a master’s student, is enrolled in 6 credits online in Session C and 3 credits online in Session D. She will be considered full time to the VA for the C term semester because the VA training time for an eight week course is full time for six hours (see the charts above), but she will only be considered 3/4 time for the D term because the VA training time for an eight week course is 3/4 time for three hours and full-time for six hours (see the charts above).
*MHA Pay: Leslie would earn the full distance-only MHA for the C term. Because she is only 3/4 training time for the D term, she would earn 80% of the full distance-only MHA for the D term. The VA rounds up training time to the nearest tenth (see MHA section below.)
Ryan, who is a master’s student, is enrolled in 3 credits online in Session C, 3 credits online in Session D, & 3 credits on campus in the 15-week session, all in the same semester. He will be considered full time for the entire semester because the terms overlap. His training time for each C and D terms is 3/4 time, and his training time for the 15 week term is 1/3 time. When the VA processes the different enrollment periods they will see that the 15-week term course over laps the C and D terms. The VA will add the terms together giving Ryan a status of full time for the semester.
*MHA Pay: Ryan would earn the full residential MHA for the entire semester. Because the 15-week term course is on-campus and it overlaps both the C term and D term, it satisfies the on-campus requirement for both terms (see MHA section below.)
VA Chapter 33 Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA)
Under the Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill, eligible students are paid a monthly housing allowance (MHA) based upon their training time. There are two different MHA rates:
Students eligible to earn the MHA must be more than half time to qualify. To earn the residential MHA, a student must be enrolled in at least one on-campus course at all times. If all courses within a term are online, the student will be paid the distance-only MHA.
Please expand the examples listed above to show examples of MHA pay rates. Still have questions? Email email@example.com.
PLEASE NOTE: MHA pay rates are prorated based upon training time and Chapter 33 Percentage of Eligibility.
VA Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) Subsistence Allowance
In some cases, Veterans participating in the VR&E program may receive a subsistence allowance while they pursue an educational or training program in preparation for a future career. The subsistence allowance is paid each month, and is based on the rate of attendance in a training program (full time, three quarter time, or half time), the number of dependents, and the type of training. If a Veteran qualifies for the Post-9/11 GI Bill he/she may be eligible to receive the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) rate for subsistence.

All VA Chapters:
All VA benefits forms are due to the VA Certifying Official by the first day of each semester (payment deadline).
Your VA Chapter is based on the type of VA benefit you are using. See the list below:
VA Form 22-1999 is an electronic enrollment certification that is submitted by our VA Certifying Official in the Military Benefits Office. This certification reports your hours and term of enrollment to the VA through our certification portal, VA-ONCE. After you have submitted your initial VA paperwork to our Military Benefits Office, our VA Certifying Official will then report your enrollment to the VA through this electronic form. You will be notified by a confirmation email that an enrollment certification was submitted on your behalf.
If all the required documents are on file with the Military Benefits Office, the enrollment certification will be submitted to the VA within 3-5 business days from the time of course registration.
It depends on which GI Bill® benefits you are using. If you are under the Montgomery GI Bill® (Ch. 30), Selected Reserves (Ch.1606), or REAP (Ch. 1607) you will receive your benefits after your enrollment certification has been submitted to the VA, the VA has processed it, and you have verified your enrollment on W.A.V.E. It usually takes a couple business days from the time a student verifies their enrollment on W.A.V.E. and when payment is direct deposited into their bank account.
If you are under the Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Ch. 33), you will receive your benefits after your enrollment certification has been submitted to the VA, the VA has processed it, and courses have started. The VA will pay the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) and the Books and Supplies Stipend directly to you, and is paid one month in arrears (i.e. BAH for January would be paid at the beginning of February).
No, when filing Taxes you are not required to include income from VA Education Benefits
Veterans who have served at least 90 days of active duty service after Sept. 10, 2001 and received an honorable discharge will qualify for the Post-9/11 GI Bill®. To qualify for the full benefit a veteran must have served at least 3 years of active duty after Sept. 10, 2001. Those veterans who qualify for the Active Duty GI Bill®, the Reserve GI Bill® or REAP will have the option to choose which benefit best suits their need.
|Member Services||% of Max Benefit Payable|
|At least 36 mo.||100%|
|At least 30 continuous days on active duty and must be discharged due to service-connected disability||100%|
|At least 30 mo., less than 36 mo.||90%|
|At least 24 mo., less than 30 mo.||80%|
|At least 18 mo., less than 24 mo.||70%|
|At least 12 mo., less than 18 mo.||60%|
|At least 6 mo., less than 12 mo.||50%|
|At least 90 days, less than 6 mo.||40%|
Eligible veterans will receive a percentage of the total benefit, as determined by length of active duty service:
* Please note: The Housing Allowance (BAH) and Books and Supplies stipend are not payable to individuals on active duty or those enrolled less than or equal to 1/2 time. You must be enrolled more than 1/2 time to receive those benefits.
Commissioned officers of the Public Health Service (PHS) and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Association (NOAA) who served at least 90 days of active duty service after September 10, 2001, will qualify for the new Post-9/11 GI Bill. To qualify for the full benefit, individuals must have served at least 3 years of active duty after September 10, 2001.
Point of Contact:
Effective August 1, 2012, veterans and their transferees will now receive a capped tuition and fee rate of $22,805.34 annually. For example, if you are 100% eligible, the Yellow Ribbon Program still exists for additional costs once the annual $ 22,805.34 cap has been exceeded. If you are 40%-90% eligible, please see below chart for the applicable annual cap.
The Book Stipend will pay up to $1,000 per year and will be paid out in increments based on training time or enrollment status.
Students attending at least one course in a residential setting, with a training time of more than 1/2-time, will qualify for a living stipend or basic allowance for housing (BAH).
- Effective October 1, 2011. Individuals only enrolled in online courses will be eligible for a monthly housing allowance equal to 50% of the national average of all Basic Allowances for Housing. Rates will be multiplied by the rate of pursuit rounded to the nearest multiple of 10.
If you are a member of the Armed Forces on Aug. 1, 2009, the Department of Defense (DoD) may offer you the opportunity to transfer benefits to your spouse or dependent children. The DoD is responsible for determining eligibility for transfer of entitlement. The law provides that an individual must have served at least 6 years in the Armed Forces and agrees to serve a minimum of 4 more years. For transfer of entitlement for dependent children, the service member must have served at least 10 years and currently be serving as of Aug. 1, 2009. However, the law permits DoD to modify the number of additional years an individual must serve by regulation. DoD is currently developing their policies and regulations to implement the transferability program.
To learn more about transferring benefits to a dependent please go to the U.S. Department of Defense webpage.
In order to transfer benefits to a dependent the following steps must be taken:
The service member must go to the U.S. Department of Defense website to determine if their dependent(s) are eligible to receive the transferred benefits. This website is only available to military members.
Upon approval, the dependent may apply to use transferred benefits with VA by going to the Vets.gov website and filling out the 22-1990e. Once the online form is filled out and submitted, you will need to print a copy and send it to us so we will have it on file. To verify you have successfully submitted your form, a confirmation number will appear on the bottom of each page of the form you print out to send us.
The VA Form 22-1990e should only be completed and submitted to Regent University by the dependent after the DoD has approved the request for Transfer of Education Benefits on the DoD website.
Once the VA processes the 22-1990e they will send the dependent their own Certificate of Eligibility (COE) or Award Letter. Once received, the dependent should forward a copy of the COE or Award Letter to the Military Benefits Office. Once we receive a copy of a VA form, COE, or Award Letter we will send a Veterans Certification Request Form to the dependent. They will need to follow the directions in the email to complete the VCR form and send back to the Military Benefits Office. The Military Benefits Office will then post a temporary credit (GI Bill® Payment Plan) on their student account to match the amount the VA will pay.
The effective date is the date a student wishes to start using his or her benefit. This date is listed on the original application form (22-1990 or 22-1990E). The VA will only pay for courses that start after this date. For example, if the student’s effective date is listed as 2/1/2011 and the student started classes on 1/17/2011 the VA will not pay for the dates 1/17 to 1/31. Therefore the student will be responsible for the remaining charges.
Yes, once all required documentation is received, the Military Benefits Office will post a credit on your student account for the amount to be paid by the VA. You will be able to view this on your Account Summary in the Genisys portal.
If you believe the amount credited to your account is inaccurate please contact the VA Certifying Official at VAbenefits@regent.edu. We will investigate the situation to ensure the amount credited is correct.
The Post 9/11 GI Bill® will only cover fees that are directly associated with tuition and attendance at the University. For instance, the Technology Fee, Parking Fee, Student Activity Fee, and Undergraduate Support Fee will all be covered.
If your Post 9/11 credit does not cover your entire balance, it could be caused by a variety of reasons. To name a few, it could be that you are only eligible for a percentage of the Post 9/11 GI Bill® (i.e. 60%), you may have other changes like certain fees that the Post 9/11 GI Bill® will not cover (i.e. Housing Charges, etc…) Remember, the amount the Post 9/11 GI Bill® covers is based on percentage and the annual tuition cap. If you have any questions about the credit posted to your student account please feel free to contact our VA Certifying Official at VAbenefits@regent.edu.
To have a course certified for VA benefits at another school, Regent University must issue a Supplemental Letter to your secondary school’s VA certifying official. Before a letter can be issued, the course must first be approved by the Registrar’s Office. Please contact the Registrar’s Office at email@example.com or 757-352-4094.
The VA likely deposited either your Books and Supplies stipend, based off of the $41.67 per credit hour rate, or your BAH. If you are not eligible for either of these funds, or question the amounts that were deposited, please contact the VA at (888) 442-4551.
The letter that you received details the amounts that the VA has overpaid, which is likely due to a change of enrollment. If you have a refundable credit on your student account as a result of dropping a course, please send a copy of your debt letter to our VA Certifying Official at VAbenefits@regent.edu. The amount that was overpaid will be refunded back to you via direct deposit or a paper check will be mailed to you so you can send those funds back to the VA. This is in accordance with VA policy. If you do not think you should be in overpayment or have more questions as to why you are in overpayment, please contact the VA at (888) 442-4551.
A change in enrollment is the most frequent reason for being sent into overpayment/debt management status. Other causes are often switching your GI Bill® without notifying the school prior to certification, or a processing error. If you have specific questions as to why you were sent into overpayment, including specific amounts, please contact the VA at (888) 442-4551.
When a student withdraws from a course, Regent University must submit an adjustment of enrollment to the VA. Because the VA will only pay for courses that receive punitive grades of A-F (grades that contribute towards the GPA), a student may be charged a portion of the course in which he or she withdraws. This amount will be collected by the Debt Management Center at the Department of Veteran Affairs.
Veterans using the Post 9/11 GI Bill® might be eligible for the Housing Allowance (BAH) if he or she meets the following conditions:
If you are a dependent (child) of an Active Duty service member, you will still receive the BAH.
The BAH is paid directly to the veteran/dependent.
The BAH is based on the Allowance for an E-5 with dependents and the institution’s location. To calculate the BAH for the location of Regent University please go to the Defense Travel Management Office website.
Yes, students who are only enrolled in online programs can receive 50% of the national average for BAH but students can receive full BAH if they take a resident course at another institution.
For more information on the process to take a course at another institution using the Post 9/11 GI Bill®, please review the “How do I take a course at another institution using the Post 9/11 GI Bill®?” FAQ.
The VA will pay up to $1,000.00 per academic year (Fall, Spring & Summer) for Books and Supplies. The Books and Supplies stipend and BAH are paid directly to you, in a lump sum, based on the information given to the VA (i.e. address or bank information on VONAPP or application form). The stipend is calculated by multiplying $41.67 by the number of credit hours enrolled (up to 24). The stipend is prorated based on the percentage of the maximum benefits payable. For example, if you are eligible for 70% of the Post 9/11 GI Bill® then you would receive 70% of $41.67 per credit hour ($29.17).
You will receive your benefits after your enrollment certification has been submitted to the VA, the VA has processed it, and courses have started. The VA will pay the Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) and the Books and Supplies Stipend directly to you, and is paid one month in arrears (i.e. BAH for January would be paid at the beginning of February).
The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the annual tuition/fee cap of $22,805.34. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution.
For example, if you are a full-time student and your tuition and fees are $31,084.89 but the VA only paid $21,084.89. Then the VA and Regent would split the remaining $10,000.00 ($5,000.00 paid by VA & $5,000.00 paid by RU). The Yellow Ribbon Program only covers tuition and fees covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill®.
Only individuals entitled to the 100% benefit rate under the Post 9/11 GI Bill® (based on service requirements) may receive this funding. Therefore, you may be eligible if:
Regent University is participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
When we receive your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) or Award Letter we will see if you are eligible for the maximum benefit (100%). We will credit your student account with the appropriate amount using the Yellow Ribbon program if you need it to cover your tuition and required fees.
Those using the Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Ch. 33) do not need to verify their enrollment on WAVE. The BAH and the Books and Supplies stipend will be paid out automatically to you once Regent University submits the enrollment certification (22-1999) to the VA. The VA will then process the certification and will see you actively attending courses and deposit the funds in the bank account you provided them during the application process. This will occur once a month, similar to those under the Montgomery GI Bill®.
