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 During COVID-19 Closure

Students are able to use their educational benefits for the summer sessions if they choose to. Summer sessions are paid out similar to the traditional fall and spring semesters. However, please keep in mind the student is only paid for days they are enrolled in classes. For example, if classes start on the 23rd of the month, the student's pay is prorated and paid for the 23rd to the 30th. Housing Allowances are still paid at the beginning of the month for the previous month completed. If you have any questions, please contact one of the team members via email. Instructions for summer certification are below.
  • If you turned in a summer schedule before the closure and still plan to complete those classes, no further action is required. 
  • If you have turned in a summer schedule and DO NOT plan on completing those classes, please drop those classes as soon as possible. 
  • If you have NOT turned in a summer schedule and would like to use your benefits, please use the online submission to request certification.
  • If you DO NOT want to use your benefits, no action is required.

Please be reminded, the processing time of 7-10 business days, remains the same.

Please DO NOT Email Schedules

We will be accepting certification request through our online submission site for returning students only that have used benefits within the last two semesters. 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.

If you have any questions about the online submission process, please contact a member of the team via email.

First, we would like to congratulate you on your acceptance to North Carolina A&T State University! Since the in-person New Student Orientations have been moved online, our office, Veteran & Military Affairs, will be hosting virtual orientation sessions where we will go over in great detail what you need to utilize your benefits here at A&T and what will happen going forward.

There are a few things you can do to ensure you are ready to get a file started with our office. 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 our 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 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.

Based on which educational benefit you are using, you will need to register for one of the sessions listed below to get a file started with our office. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Zoom meeting. If you are unable to participate in Zoom meetings, there will be a call-in option for each session.

Finally, we would like to reassure you that you are not behind in the process. Our team is looking forward to “meeting” you in the near future and again, congratulations on your acceptance. In essence of Aggie Pride, welcome to Aggie Land!

You are required to attend one of these sessions to get a file started with our office, therefore, please read carefully and choose one session below. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our team via email. Thank you
