Attention:

Update for

Chapter 1606 and 1607 Recipients:

Our VA Education Liaison Representative’s designate has informed our office that we can certify your enrollment with the VA under your Chapter 1606 or 1607 even though you may also be receiving funds from the Ohio National Guard Scholarship Program.

The DoD’s new directive concerning tuition assistance and how it relates to your VA 1606 or 1607 benefits only refers to “federal” tuition assistance.

The ONGSP is a “state scholarship” program and not a tuition assistance program.

You will note that your ONG award is now being posted as “ONG Scholarship” on your student-bill as opposed to the previous designation of “ONG Tuition Assistance”.

 If your 15SS enrollment certification was terminated at the VA as a result of our prior instructions from our VA rep. it will be re-certified this week.

 Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions or concerns about this issue.

Respectfully,

Anthony Louderback

Program Coordinator

TA, ONGSP, Chapter #30, #31, #33 (not a transfer of benefits), #1606, or #1607 Recipients, You now have priority registration at UC!

 

We first want to welcome you to the University of Cincinnati and thank you for your immeasurable service to our great country.  We are extremely excited and proud to have you as a part of our Bearcat family!  Our office is a resource center for any topic relevant to the Department of Veteran Affairs and your benefits.  Along with certifying enrollment and other education related issues, we also have a large resource base for questions and/or concerns about other VA benefits.

Veterans Programs & Services is committed to providing our veterans the support and assistance you need to successfully complete your education here at UC. 

To get started, you need to file through the Department of Veterans Affairs for your education benefits. You must accomplish this very important process before taking advantage of your benefits at UC. We need your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) or Award Letter verifying your eligibility for VA education benefits. If you are a reservist or National Guard, you must also file through your unit to obtain your Notice of Basic Eligibility (NOBE). We cannot begin certifying you with the VA until we have received your COE and/or NOBE. If you need help in the filing process for your COE, please contact our office. For help with the NOBE, contact your unit.

Any questions that pertain to these instructions or questions regarding VA benefits, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 513-556-6811 or vetcert@uc.edu.
