Under the provisions of Title 38, Cheyney University is an accredited university for the education of Veterans. A certifying official in the Office of the Registrar provides assistance to eligible student Veterans, Active Servicepersons, Dependents, Reservists, and National Guard Members with their questions and paperwork. The veteran student must contact the Department of Veteran Affairs to complete an application that will determine his/her eligibility for educational benefits.
Once that has been completed, the Certifying Official in the Office of the Registrar will be able to certify enrollment status (total amount of credits registered for that semester) using the VA ONCE (Veteran Affairs website). Once the certification has occurred, the Veteran will be notified via email by the VA, and the Veteran student can move forward with obtaining his/her benefits from the Department of Veteran Affairs.
Cheyney University is an approved educational institution for education and training under the Veterans Educational Assistance Act (GI Bill®) and the Dependent’s Act. Information regarding eligibility, entitlement, and types of training authorized may be obtained from the Veterans Administration Regional Office by calling the toll-free number (888) 442-4551 (this is a 24 hour automated line where you can confirm when the last check was sent, the date it was processed, the date the benefits were certified, the time left on entitlement, and the last date you can use entitlement) or by accessing the website at www.gibill.va.gov.
The Certifying Official at Cheyney University is committed to assisting qualified veterans, dependents of veterans, and the dependents of disabled veterans with their educational benefits.
