GI Bill® Education Benefits

Students who receive monthly GI Bill® benefit payments must:

  1. Apply for admission to the college and officially declare a major in a degree or certificate program. If students change their major, they must notify the Veterans Counselor. This may affect their educational benefits.
  2. Submit a GI Bill® Certificate of Eligibility and a DD-214 to the Veterans Counselor.
  3. Register for classes each semester and bring or email their schedule to the Veterans Counselor.
  4. Arrange to have official transcripts from previous colleges sent to the Enrollment Services Office as soon as possible.
  5. Notify the Veterans Counselor immediately of any changes in enrollment status. Students should be aware that a reduction in academic course load as a result of a withdrawal, incomplete, audit or N grade, may result in a retroactive reduction of benefits, as well as a personal repayment on the part of the veteran.
  6. Maintain good academic standing and take only courses that apply directly to their degree or certificate program. Courses cannot be a repeat of any courses taken at Capital or any other institution.
