Office of Veterans' Services
Please read the following information.
If you agree with these policies, you may access the Request for Certification Form.
I must complete an application (22-1990) for VA Benefits with the
VA before I will receive any benefits. This application (22-1990) can
be found at http://www.gibill.va.gov/apply-for-benefits/application/ on
the VONAPP site.
I must complete this form (Request for Certification Form) each semester
to receive benefits to attend Cowley College.
VA regulations require me to comply with Cowley
College's Veterans Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy. I have
read and understand this policy.
I understand that I am required to forward to Cowley College's Registrar's
Office all academic transcripts from other post-secondary schools I
have attended. I have complied with this requirement.
A degree plan and declared degree is required for all students to receive
VA benefits. I must have a degree on file with the college. If I have
not declared a degree or major, I will be considered as an Associates
of Arts degree seeking student with a Liberal Arts major.
The VA requires the college certifying official verify the beginning
and ending date of your classes. Therefore, if I enroll in a pre-session
or classes that are less than 16 weeks I may not be entitled to full
time (12 credit hours) benefits. If I am taking classes that are not
full semester classes I will check with the Registrar to verify how
they will be considered by the VA.
All classes each semester up to 12 credit hours must be within my degree
plan. Classes over 12 credit hours in a semester do not need to fit
in my degree plan.
If I am a Chapter 30 (MGIB), 1606 or 1607 I will verify my attendance
monthly by either calling 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) or by creating
a WAVE account at http://www.gibill.va.gov/resources/verify-attendance/
If I already have a Bachelors degree or an Associate degree I might
not be eligible for benefits at Cowley College.
I must pay my own tuition and school expenses when due. The VA does
not pay them for me (except Chapter 31, and 33 veterans). I will not
be allowed to charge my book at the college bookstore. If I am
receiving additional aid Pell or Loan I will check with the Financial
Aid department about permission to charge textbooks and supplies.
I can only receive benefits for classes that are required for the completion
of my degree.
I will immediately notify the Registrar if I drop or withdraw from
class(es) or change my address.
I will repay the VA for classes from which I drop or withdraw or for
any benefits I wrongfully receive.
If at any time I have questions regarding my benefits I may contact
the Registrar firstname.lastname@example.org (620-441-5595)
or go to the VA website at http://www.gibill.va.gov/
