Capitol Technology University is happy to serve our veterans and dependents of veterans. We thank you for your service to our country!

Students wishing to use their VA education benefits while attending Capitol Technology University can receive assistance with their enrollment certifications and other questions by contacting a School Certifying Official (SCO) in the Office of Registration and Records at 301-369-2313 or VABenefits@CapTechU.edu. Our office is located in Room A-208 of MA-Com Hall. We also have a printer-friendly information letter on using VA Education Benefits at Capitol Technology University that can be found here.

Veterans are certified on a per semester basis. Certifications do not automatically roll over from one semester to another. All continuing students must complete the VA Certification Request Form each semester or term that they wish to utilize their VA education benefits. In addition, any changes to a student’s schedule or status (including dropped, added or audited courses, changes in major or withdrawals) must be reported to a certifying official immediately as the university is required to notify the Department of Veterans Affairs within 30 days of any change is student status.

Veterans can find helpful information on the use of their VA education benefits at the GI Bill Website including how to apply for VA Benefits and contact information for benefits counselors.

Eligibility

Eligible applicants and their dependents may qualify for veterans' educational benefits that are available through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. If you think you may be entitled to these benefits, contact the VA' s education information hotline at 888-442-4551 to determine your eligibility. 

To use your benefits you must be admitted to the university in a program approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs and submit a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility from the VA.

Students receiving benefits under Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation must submit a copy of VA Form 28-1905 - Authorization and Certification of Entrance or Reentrance into Rehabilitation and Certification of Status. This form will be provided by your Vocational Rehabilitation counselor.

In general, you will begin to receive your benefits after the Office of Registration and Records receives your Certificate of Eligibility and certifies your enrollment and education plan. You'll receive benefits only during your times of certified enrollment. Contact the Office of Registration and Records each semester you plan to use benefits so we can certify your enrollment. It can take several weeks for the VA to process benefits applications.

First Time Applicants for Veterans Educational Benefits

If you are planning to use Veteran Education Benefits for the first time at Capitol Technology University, you must submit a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) and DD214 to the Office of Registration and Records. You may scan your  forms and e-mail them to VABenefits@CapTechU.edu.

All New and Continuing Applicants for Veterans Educational Benefits

All new and continuing veterans applying for educational benefits must complete a VA Enrollment Certification Request Form for each semester enrolled.

 

This is the VA Enrollment Certification Request Form.

 
This form should be completed each semester to indicate all of the courses you intend to take.
