Information for Eligible Students
It is part of the mission of The Seattle School and the Office of Student Financial Services to serve the needs of individuals eligible for Veterans Affairs Educational Benefits. We are available to assist veterans, veterans’ dependents, and others eligible for educational benefits in answering questions or addressing concerns related to eligibility, benefits or certification.
Students Financial Services is responsible for certifying veteran enrollment to the regional Veteran Affairs Office each semester. If you are a student receiving VA benefits you must complete your registration on time and indicate that they are a VA student. You will receive your first VA educational benefit check approximately six to eight weeks after your VA certiifcation is submitted. The amount of money you will receive differs for each program — call the VA Seattle Regional Office at (800) 827-1000 for more specifics.
