Benefit Programs

Veteran Affairs Educational Benefit Programs at Belmont

Each student's VA eligibility, benefits, and educational goals may differ. Students utilizing education benefits, who have been determined by the VA as eligible for more than one VA chapter or education benefit, are responsible for personally researching and determining which education chapter is the best option based on personal choice. Neither the Department of Veteran Affairs, nor Belmont’s School Certifying Official can make this determination.
