Veteran Services

The staff in the Veterans Affairs Office is available to assist students who are eligible to receive educational benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. All degree plans offered by Eastern have been approved by the State Accrediting Agency for payment of federal benefits.

To Claim VA Educational Benefits:

  • You must come to the Eastern Registrar/Veterans Affairs Office each semester that you enroll.   
  • You must have your academic advisor and Eastern's VA Representative approve your classes each semester that you enroll.   
  • If you are claiming benefits for the first time and you were on Active Duty, you will need to bring copy 4 of your DD form 214 to the Registrar/Veterans Affairs Office.   
  • If you are in the National Guard or the Reserves, you will need to bring form 2384 (NOBE) to the Registrar/Veterans Affairs Office. This form is available from your Unit Commander.   
  • If you are claiming benefits as a dependent, you will need to bring us a letter of eligibility from the Department of Veterans Affairs, or the eligible veteran's claim number or social security number, and copy of your birth certificate.
Student's Responsibilities:
  • Notify the VA Coordinator if you have added or dropped any classes.
  • Notify the VA Coordinator if your degree has changed.
  • Notify the VA Coordinator if you plan to do a total withdraw.

Eastern's Veterans Affairs Office keeps the necessary VA forms that will need to be completed in order to activate your Educational Assistance.
