Request to Use VA & Military Benefits
All prospective students using VA & Military Benefits must submit this form. This provides us with the necessary information to verify your GI Bill® benefits and make sure everything is on track for your start date.
Yellow Ribbon Scholarship Application
All students that meet the VA requirements to receive the Yellow Ribbon Scholarship will receive it as we have unlimited scholarships at the unlimited dollar amount. The reason we have an application is because 1) prospective students wanted to receive an acceptance letter knowing that they are guaranteed to receive the benefit and, 2) and we wanted to explain what happens when a dependent using the benefit runs out of entitlement.
VA Form 22-1995
All chapter 30, 1606, and 33 students who change majors, minors, concentrations or move from one program to another must fill out this form and submit it to the VRC. We cannot certify your attendance if your current major does not reflect what we have on file. When we certify you we must state that we have a 1995 in your VA file. Please omit the banking information as we do not need to know that.
VA Form 22-5495
All chapter 35 or Fry recipients students who change majors, minors, concentrations or move from one program to another must fill out this form and submit it to the VRC. We cannot certify your attendance if your current major does not reflect what we have on file. When we certify you we must state that we have a 5495 in your VA file. Please omit the banking information as we do not need to know that.
Parent Letter Request
The VA will only cover one program at a time. If you decide to take classes concurrently or during the summer at another school please submit a Parent Letter so that the VA will cover the courses. Most online bachelor students or traditional bachelor students taking summer courses do this. This allows Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill® students to be full-time at Concordia but take the residential face to face course at a local community college so that they receive the full residential BAH rate. Please submit the following Parent Letter Request Form before you register for the class at the other school. This form allows our Registrar to sign off on the class to meet your degree requirement. Only once this happens, are we allowed to send off the Parent Letter, so that you can receive your benefits.
Request to Certify
All VA & Military Benefit recipients must submit this online form for every term that they wish the VRC to certify their attendance with the VA. This allows us to update your address and phone number with the VA to make sure that you receive your new Certificate of Eligibility that notifies you of your remaining days of eligibility, tells you what the VA paid to the school and other important information. We will not certify your attendance without receiving this online form.
