VA Benefits: How can I find out if I'm eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill?

Your first step will be to contact the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to determine if you are eligible for the Post9/11 GI Bill.

Learn more about tuition assistance for military personnel on the University of Maryland University College website.

After you’ve confirmed through the VA that you are eligible, please send a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility to Military/Veterans Department, as follows:

Once you have registered for classes, log in to MyUMUC and visit Veteran Certification in the Finances section to request certification. Select your current semester and complete the form.

The VA will submit payment directly to the University. If you are not 100 percent eligible, any additional amount that you owe will be due after the VA has submitted their portion of the payment.

If you have additional questions, please contact a Veterans Affairs Advisor at 800-888-8682.
