Veterans Information

Veterans Resources and Links

Bellin College is proud to support the men and women in uniform who are serving or have served our country. It is important that the student soldier/veteran applicant be aware of their eligibility for federal and state veteran’s benefits before working with the Bellin College Bursar.  Student veterans are asked to contact the Department of Veterans Affairs at www.gibill.va.gov or their County Veterans Services Officer (CVSO) for assistance in utilizing benefits.

Prospective VA students should speak to the Certifying Official in the Bellin College Bursar’s Office, during the enrollment process, to discuss benefits and eligibility.

Listed below are links that VA students should find helpful in determining eligibility.

Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, Section 103 of Public Law 115-407 Effective August 1, 2019, section 103 of P. L. 115-407, requires the State Approving Agency (SAA), or the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), when acting as the SAA, to disapprove programs of education that do not permit individuals using benefits under either chapter 31, or 33, title 38, United States Code, to attend or participate in courses while awaiting payment from the VA.

Educational institutions must have a policy in place that will allow an individual to attend or participate in a program of education if the individual provides the school with a “Certificate of Eligibility (COE).” VA interprets “certificate of eligibility” to be any documentation provided by VA that serves as verification of an individual’s eligibility to benefits under chapter 31 or chapter 33.”

All Military students and/or their dependents must provide documentation from their respective chapters to collect federal and/or TA education benefits before registering for classes. This documentation must be turned in to the School Certifying Official (SCO) in the Bursar’s office.

All students identifying themselves on their application as Veteran, or eligible for veteran’s education benefits either active duty or separated, are directed to the Veteran’s Certifying Official at the college for counseling regarding their VA Education Benefits.  Additionally, the Certifying Official reaches out to the student and refers the student to their Education Services Officer (ESO) before admission to any program.  

Transferability of credit earned in the Armed Forces

Credit earned while serving may meet Bellin College requirements. Bellin College grants credit for specific requirements after a review of a JST (Joint Services Transcript) or a transcript from the CCAF (Community College of the Air Force).

Military Tuition Refund Policy

Bellin College will return any unearned TA (Tuition Assistance) funds on a prorate basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when the student stops attending.

16 Week Semester

Week 1   100% refund
Week 2 – 12 Calculated refund based on % of class completed (from 99% – 59%)
Week 13 – 16   0% – 60% of class is completed

These funds are returned to the military service branch by the college or university.  If a student is deployed or stops attending for a military reason, the college will work with that student to make sure that the student incurs no additional debt as a result of deployment or other mandatory military obligations.
