    Veterans Services


    Welcome to Veterans Services, where student veterans and veteran dependents can get information about federal education benefits. We work closely with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or Veterans Administration (VA) to administer education benefits covered under Title 10 and Title 38, U.S. Code.

    If this is your first-time using VA Federal Education Benefits, applying for them on the Veterans Affairs website at is the first step.

    A tool on the page will help you select the appropriate form. Veterans Affairs sends the Certificate of Eligibility in about 30 days that determines what benefit you qualify to use while matriculating through college.

    Below you will find the most used benefits at Morehouse and their required documents for first time users and students transferring benefits.

    All students receiving veteran education benefits are encouraged to complete a FAFSA to ensure the cost of attendance can be met in addition to using veteran funding.


    Please visit our Financial Aid & Scholarship page for additional funding assistance and scholarships.


    A student receiving VA benefits must understand his college’s policy regarding satisfactory progress and academic probation (found in the college catalog). A VA student placed on probation has a maximum of two consecutive semesters to return to good standing. Failure to return to good standing within two semesters will make the student ineligible for VA educational benefits.

    The student may regain his eligibility for VA benefits for future terms under one of two conditions: (I.) a return to good standing in the college, or (2.) a request for resumption of VA educational benefits is submitted to the VA claiming mitigating circumstances and the VA reinstates benefits based on evidence supporting the student’s claim.
