In order to apply for enrollment and receive education benefits
at St. John’s, you must notify the Veterans Benefit Coordinator at
our Queens or Staten Island campus and complete the Veterans
Benefits Certification Request Form.
This form must be turned in to the Veterans Benefit Coordinator at
the University before you can become certified and eligible for
Veteran Education Benefits.
VA Payment Information
It is important to have all necessary forms, such as the Veteran Affairs
Benefits Educational Form and the Federal Financial Aid
Application (FAFSA), completed and approved before the tuition
bill due date.
Once we receive approval of your veteran education benefits, we
provide you with a temporary credit on your student account,
pending receipt of actual benefits. Please note that St. John’s
will not issue any refund of excess financial aid until all
financial aid awards have been received by the University.
Changes in Enrollment Status
If you do not wish to be certified for veteran benefits in a given
semester, you must notify the University Veterans Coordinator in
writing, prior to the beginning of the semester.
It is your responsibility to inform St. John’s University and
Veteran Affairs of any changes in your enrollment status, such as
dropping or withdrawing from a course.

for veterans through the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill at www.gibill.va.gov/.
