Veterans' Benefits

G.I. Bill® Benefits

Penn State Great Valley is grateful for the service veterans have given to our country and is honored to help veterans pursue their educational goals.

Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces who are enrolled in master's degree or graduate certificate programs or in the Project Management certificate program may be eligible for G.I. Bill education benefits as determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Penn State will certify veterans' enrollment status to the VA to expedite payment of G.I. Bill benefits.

Every student receiving G.I. Bill benefits should register for and use a premium eBenefits account. On the eBenefits website, students can view their remaining entitlement, delimiting date, enrollment certification dates, and other important G.I. Bill information.

Take these steps to get started with G.I. Bill benefits at Penn State Great Valley:

  1. Apply for benefits through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Eligible veterans will receive a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) describing the type of benefit to which you are entitled, the percentage of your entitlement, and the time period for your benefit.
  2. Sign up for a premium VA eBenefits account.
  3. Provide a copy of your eBenefits Enrollment Status page, or a copy of your COE, to the Penn State Great Valley school certifying officials by email to gvveterans@psu.edu or in person at the Office of Student Services.
  4. Submit an Enrollment Verification Request each semester to the Penn State Great Valley school certifying officials by email to gvveterans@psu.edu or in person at the Office of Student Services.
  5. Monitor LionPATH to ensure your University bursar account reflects G.I. Bill payments.

Eligible veterans and actively serving members of the military may request priority registration privileges at Penn State, which is helpful for classes that fill quickly.

Veterans using G.I. bill benefits are also eligible for federal student loans
