Certificate of Eligibility

Once your VA benefits have been approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs, you will receive a Certificate of Eligibility. This document must be submitted to Virginia International University. VIU must certify your enrollment before your benefits can be paid.

Note: You do not have to have your Certificate of Eligibility to apply to and register for classes at VIU. You are encouraged to complete the admission application process as early as possible. The Certificate of Eligibility needs to be provided to VIU no later than 14 days after classes have begun for the semester for which you intend to register.
