US veterans benefits
If you're a US veteran or a dependant of a veteran you may be entitled to educational benefits from the US Department of Veterans Affairs, provided your studies aren't undertaken by distance learning.
What you need to do
You would need to contact Bao Chu to check whether your proposed programme of study has already been approved by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. If the programme has not yet been approved, the College would have to apply for programme approval, provided we have received a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility and you have been made an unconditional offer offer by Royal Holloway. It is advisable to start the process as soon as possible, as programme approval could take up to 2 weeks to be processed.
What happens next
Once approved we have to certify your enrolment termly before your funds will be released. Benefits paid under the Post- 9/11 GI Bill towards your tuition and fees will be paid directly to Royal Holloway in the form of a cheque. The amount paid will be prorated according to your benefit level, and will be the lesser of the net amount of your tuition and fees after applying any scholarships, grants or waivers, or $17,500. Your benefits may therefore not cover your tuition fees in full.
