Using Veterans Education Benefits
The Office of Financial Aid at Global Health College handles certification of enrollment for veteran students. The School Certifying Official is Rene Clark. To receive educational benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/), you must apply for benefits using the VONAP application (http://vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp/main.asp). The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs will review your application, and if you are eligible for a chapter of the GI Bill, then the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will send you a Certificate of Eligibility Letter. A copy of the Certificate of Eligibility Letter must be submitted to the Veterans Office and a completed Veterans Benefits Request Form is required to receive education benefits.
If you already have a Certificate of Eligibility Letter, you can apply directly to Global Health College—just make sure to bring the Certificate of Eligibility Letter with you and a member of our knowledgeable and welcoming Admissions team will help you through our enrollment process.
GI Bill Helps Fund Education for Veteran Spouse
“The GI Bill changed everything for me. I am now able to concentrate on my studies, and achieve a good work life balance.”
–Jennifer Ndungu, Practical Nursing student
Jennifer Ndungu is a proud Army wife who has been married for ten years to a staff sergeant stationed at Fort Belvoir in Alexandria, Virginia. As a military spouse, she has traveled extensively and lived in Georgia, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Iowa, and in Munich, Germany. Before pursuing her nursing education, she received a degree in computer science and worked as an IT analyst for 3 and a half years. She was following in her brother’s footsteps and complying with her parents’ wishes—even though her real dream was to become a nurse. Her journey to pursue her passion led her to Global Health College.
Prior to taking advantage of the GI Bill benefits as a military spouse, Jennifer was going to school full-time, working three days a week, and managing a household with two small children while her husband was on 6–14 month deployments.
Now with her benefits through the GI Bill at Global Health College, Jennifer is able to work fewer hours, concentrate on her studies, and not worry about debts from educational loans.
