Receiving Your Veterans Benefits

Applications for Veterans' benefits are completed online at http://www.gibill.va.gov. Assistance is available. It takes approximately six to eight weeks for the Department of Veteran Affairs to process a new claim. 

Submit a certified copy of your DD-214, or a copy of your Notice of Basic Eligibility forms. You may get certified copies of your DD-214 at the Lorain County Administration Building, 224 Middle Ave, Elyria, Ohio, County Recorder's office. The Notice of Basic Eligibility is available from your commanding officer.

Please be sure that you have submitted your signed Transcript Evaluation Request form to Enrollment, Financial and Career Services. This gives the College permission to evaluate your military experience and/or previous college work for applicable transfer credits.
