Veteran Educational Benefits
We’re here to help you. If you’re a veteran or a dependent planning to use your VA entitlement to cover tuition expenses or to help with other costs as you attend school, we’ve created the following three step process to guide you in submitting the correct paperwork. We’re also happy to answer your questions about everything from claiming your entitlements to finding your regional Veterans Affairs office to disability services at the University.
In order for University of Phoenix to process VA entitlements, all paperwork must be submitted to your Enrollment Representative at University of Phoenix. Your VA entitlements will be significantly delayed if you bypass the University of Phoenix Veterans Affairs office and send your VA information directly to the federal VA office.
The Veterans Shared Responsibility Letter highlights your responsibility as a student and our responsibility as a university. Read about it here
