Veterans Affairs Benefits (GI Bill)

York St John University participates in the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Educational Benefits programme for US military veterans and their dependants (Post-9/11 GI Bill). Please note that the University is not eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program.

Eligible students wishing to study at York St John University should first visit the US Department of Veterans Affairs webpage and apply for benefits.

Students are then advised to email usloans@yorksj.ac.uk to check whether the course they wish to study is approved for VA benefits. Allow plenty of time to check whether your course has already been registered, in case we need to apply to the VA for its certification. Note that programmes are approved for in-residence training only; distance and online learning courses are not eligible for VA funding at schools outside of the United States.

Please send us a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs to confirm the level of benefits you are eligible to receive under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. We will also need your full social security number (SSN) before your enrolment can proceed.

Continuing students, please also send us an updated copy of your Certificate of Eligibility letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs in advance of each new academic year.

Once your course has been approved for VA funding and you have enrolled at York St John University for the new academic year, we will complete and submit your enrolment information to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Once your certification has been submitted you will be notified.

Your attendance will be confirmed to the VA at the beginning of each semester. The VA will process your benefits and send your tuition fee contribution direct to the University. Any additional payments for living expenses are paid direct to the student on a monthly basis and are outside of the University’s control. We are obliged to inform the VA when your enrolment status changes at any stage.

Please note that receipt of VA funding does not affect your US Federal Loan entitlement.
