GI Bill - Federal Benefits


GI Bill Comparison Tools

Comparison Tool/Payment Rates

You may be eligible for several types of VA education and training benefits, but there are many things to consider before you apply for a GI Bill program. For most participants, the Post-9/11 GI Bill is the best option. Other students would benefit more from the Montgomery GI Bill.

    Quarterly Certification Form

    If you are a continuing student who has already registered with this office and would like to continue receiving your VA Education Benefits (except Cal Vet Fee waiver), please submit the form below.  It is recommended that you submit as soon as you sign up for classes for the upcoming term.

    Fall 2017 tuition and fee deadline: September 15
    Fall 2017 Quarterly Course Enrollment Certification deadline: September 1

    If you submit late, it is your responsibility to ensure your tuition and fees are covered by another means, while we process, we will reimburse you at a later time.

    Special Instructions for Freshman and Sophomores using Post-9/11 GI Bill: If your enrollment window opens after the 1st of the month, submit a form with your anticipated classes before the 1st of the month. Once your registration window opens and you have enrolled in classes, email with your schedule.

    Major/Minor Declaration Form

    These Declaration forms are only used if you are between majors.  For example, the system shows you as a Biological Sciences major, but you have spoken to your counselor and will start to pursue a Public Health Policy major.  This should be turned in with your Quarterly Certification Form that reflects the classes in the new major you are pursuing.  It should also list courses that you will need to take in upcoming quarters before the major change becomes official.  Once the major change is official and reflected in your degree audit, this will no longer be needed.
