The Veteran’s Resource and Support Center highly recommends students start the VA Education benefits process prior to their arrival at SUU.

Important information to obtain prior to arrival at SUU includes:

  • GI Bill Chapter of Eligibly
  • Percentage of Eligibility
  • Effective Date of Benefit Eligibility

The VA Education benefits application process can take up to 90 days from date of inquiry to approval. Students are advised to start this process early to ensure timely correspondence regarding benefits.
