Wheaton College acts as a liaison with the Veterans Administration for students who may qualify to receive veterans’ education benefits. Eligible students should apply through the United States Department of Veterans Affairs in order to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility. It is the student’s responsibility to decide which benefit is more appropriate for him/her based on individual circumstances.
Applications can be completed online or by calling the Department of Veterans Affairs at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551).
Once the Certificate of Eligibility has been received, the student should contact the VA Certifying Official in the Office of the Registrar. The Certifying Official will then certify the student’s enrollment information to the Regional Processing Office (RPO). The RPO will process payment of benefits directly to the student.
