Using Your Veterans Benefits

First-Time VA Benefits Users

If you are planning to use Veteran Education Benefits for the first time at Capitol Technology University, you must submit the VA Certification Request Form for New and Readmitted Students AFTER you have registered for your first semester. This form includes a field in which you will upload the latest copy of your Certificate of Eligibility or Statement of Benefits as a PDF.

Continuing VA Benefits Users

All continuing students (those who have been enrolled in the past three semesters) must complete the VA Enrollment Certification Request Form for Continuing Students AFTER you have registered for the semester for which you are using benefits. 

When Will I Be Certified?

As long as you have submitted your latest Certificate of Eligibility and the appropriate Certification Request form, you will be certified after the add period has closed for the semester/term you requested to be certified for. The last day to add a course date can be found in the Calendars section of the University Catalog. You will receive an invoice regardless of VA status as they are generated for all enrolled students, however, the payment disbursed by the VA will be applied to your account after you are certified.

Am I Eligible for Any Discounts?

To inquire about your eligibility for Active Duty or Retired Servicemember discounts please contact your Admissions counselor if you are a new or returning student. If you are a continuing student please contact the Business Office at or 301-369-2319.

Schedule Adjustments

If any change is made to your class schedule after submitting your initial VA Enrollment Certification Request Form you must report the change(s) to the Office of Registration and Records by completing and submitting the VA Schedule Adjustment Form. Completing this form will allow our office to report your enrollment changes to the Department of Veterans Affairs in a timely manner.  Timely reporting will avoid overpayments of your educational benefits which will need to be refunded.  We do not report added courses until we receive this form.  

Who Do I Contact if I Still Have Questions?

Students wishing to use their VA education benefits while attending Capitol Technology University can receive assistance with questions by contacting the School Certifying Official (SCO) in the Office of Registration and Records at
