4.) Get Squared Away with Your Rights and Responsibilities as a Veteran Student
All Veterans who have served subsequently to 9/11 have abundant rights and benefits under the GI Bill, whether you are on active duty or have been discharged.
Know your eligibility and get the right documentation of your benefits; utilizing your VA benefits at Stevens cannot be executed until you possess the right paperwork!
Your objective is to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) from the VA for your benefits - a DD-214 (your discharge papers) or your Basic Individual Record (BIR) may be used as a substitute while you await your COE.
