Office of Veteran and Military Affairs

The Office of Veteran and Military Affairs (OVMA) is here to meet the needs of our students who are veterans, service members, dependents of service members, and/or veterans. We certify your educational benefits throughout each academic year. The OVMA is also prepared to advise and counsel you in regard to any veteran or education-related concerns.

We serve as the liaison between veteran students and the Department of Veterans Affairs. We assist eligible veteran students in understanding their educational benefits, provide guidance on procedural requirements, and certify, register and report enrollments to the VA to ensure that veterans receive their benefits in a timely manner.

Important Information

DO NOT Email Schedules

We will continue to accept certification request through our online submission site for returning students only that have used benefits within the last two semesters. If you haven't already, you will need to create a free account, but this will allow us much better methods of communicating with you throughout the process. Once you have signed up, you will see our office’s page and at the bottom, an area that will say “Request for Certification – Returning Students”. You can click the submit button that will direct you to a form with basic information to complete. You do not need to attach your schedule; this online submission is the equivalent of turning in your schedule. Please keep in mind, the office's processing time during non-peak times is 7-10 business days, during peak times it is 10-14 business days.

If you have any questions about the online submission process, please contact the office.

First, we would like to congratulate you on your acceptance to North Carolina A&T State University! In the upcoming weeks, your student will receive information from New Student Programs. Our office, Veteran & Military Affairs (VMA), will be hosting online information/orientation sessions where we will go over in great detail what you need to utilize your benefits here at NC A&T and what will happen going forward.

Until then, there are a few things you can do.

APPLY FOR BENEFITS

If you have not yet applied for your educational benefits from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, please do so as soon as possible. If needed, you'll find more detailed information regarding benefits on the site. 

If you have already applied and have received your Certificate of Eligibility from VA, please hold onto it; we will need a copy for your student’s file when the time comes. If you have not received the Certificate of Eligibility, do not be alarmed, VA can take up to 4-6 weeks to mail them out.

REGISTER FOR VMA NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION

Based on which educational benefit you are using, you will need to choose one of the VMA orientation sessions to register for. If you are unable to participate in Zoom meetings, there will be a call-in option for each session. Please read carefully and choose one session listed under New Students.

You will be required to attend one of the sessions to go forward with establishing a file and using your benefits here at A&T. Based on availability, our team will approve your registration followed by the more detailed information and link to the meeting. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our team.

We look forward to “meeting” you in the near future. Again, congratulations on your acceptance, and in essence of Aggie Pride, Welcome to Aggie Land!
