If you need assistance at any point in the process, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.


If you have used your veterans benefits at another college or university, you will need to update your application to let the VA know that you will be using your remaining benefits at a different school. The process is relatively simple and should only take about 15-20 minutes. We recommend that you have any address changes and your bank information available at this time.

In approximately 30 days after applying to the VA, you should receive an updated 资格证书(COE) 在普通邮件中. 退伍军人事务部也可能通过电子邮件向您发送一份副本.

Our office will need a copy of your COE as soon as you receive it in order to process your certifications.

In the meantime, please also submit your most recent DD-214 (disregard if you are still serving on active duty).

If you are a member of the National Guard or Reserve, 我们还需要一份你的 基本资格通知书(NOBE)还有一份你的 征募爱发牢骚的人 (如适用). Check with your Unit Administrator to receive copies of these documents.

Make it a practice to fill out the 申请证书表格 at the same time you register for the next semester.

一旦收到此表格, your certifying official here at Carson-Newman will review your eligibility and ensure that the classes you’ve chosen are within VA guidelines. Please note that VA educational benefits will only cover courses required for your degree program.

If you feel as though you may be at risk to fail a course for academic reasons, please contact our office so that we may assist with resources here on campus.

Always notify the Office of 军事和退伍军人服务 if you make any changes to your schedule or degree program, 因为我们必须向退伍军人管理局报告.
