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. Please take a moment to learn more about our commitment to you.
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.
