Prospective Students

The first question you may have is, “Am I eligible to receive VA Education Benefits?” Go to the Department of Veterans Affairs website and apply for benefits. You can review the VA benefits available and decide what is best for you by going to the Education and Training page at the VA. According to the most recent information from the VA, it normally takes 2 to 10 weeks for the application to be processed and for you to receive you Certificate of Eligibility (COE) from them. This is the document which informs you of your eligibility, length of benefits remaining, and type of program(s) for which you are eligible, including Yellow Ribbon. Bring the COE to Bellarmine Veteran’s and Military Services (along with the current semester course schedule) and we will work with the VA to start the benefits.

Is Bellarmine for you? We believe we are and would like the opportunity to prove it to you. Bellarmine offers a unique blend of community, support, and care that larger institutions cannot give you. Take a few moments to browse our website and the links provided to see for yourself.

As always, if you don’t find answers here, email us at veteransandmilitary@bellarmine.edu or call Bellarmine Veterans and Military Services for assistance at 502.272.7027. If you want to see a live person, drop by our office, Room 205F in Horrigan Hall. We look forward to seeing you.
