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 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.

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

  1. Apply for eligibility through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Submit the online application. If eligible, you will receive a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) describing the type of benefit you are entitle to, the percentage of your entitlement, and the time frame for your benefit.
  2. Provide a copy of your COE to the Penn State Great Valley Office of Student Services.
  3. Before the beginning of each semester, submit an Enrollment Verification Request to the Office of Student Services.
  4. Monitor your LionPATH account to ensure your G.I. Bill's funds are applied to your bill. 

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

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

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