Veteran and Military Application Process

In order to start at Bellarmine University, these are the steps you must take.

Step 1

The process begins with you going to the VA website and filling out the application. The VA will process your application in 2 to 10 weeks and send you a Certificate of Eligibility (COE). The Eligibility Certificate indicates the number of months and days of benefits remaining. It will also indicate whether you are eligible for Yellow Ribbon Benefits.

Step 2

Apply to Bellarmine University by visiting our Apply Now page.

Step 3

For all Students with military service you need to request your military transcripts before enrollment. Please use the following sites to do so:

Step 4

Determine if you need or want other financial aid by contacting the Bellarmine Financial Aid Office at 502.272.7300. Their office is located in Horrigan Hall, Rm 202.


Step 5

When you receive your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) and your admission to Bellarmine University is approved, bring a copy of your COE and your current course schedule to the Bellarmine Veteran’s and Military Services Office in BL 209. For those of you who are considering Chapter 31 Benefits for education, the first step is slightly different. Visit the local VA Office at 321 West Main St., Suite 390, Louisville, KY 40202 (Phone: 1.800.827.1000) and they will contact us directly.
