VCFA is approved by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to accept veterans’ benefits for veterans and their dependents.
VCFA participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program and is approved for the Tuition Assistance (TA) Program through the Department of Defense. VCFA’s registrar certifies enrollment for veterans or their dependents so their educational benefits can be used at VCFA.
A veteran’s eligibility for educational benefits is established by the VA. Information may be found at www.gibill.va.gov or by calling 1-888-442-4551. The amount of the benefit is dependent on eligibility and entitlements.
Veterans who are planning to use their educational benefits to attend VCFA must first obtain a “Letter of Eligibility” from the VA. The form for this purpose (Form 22-1990 – Application for Education Benefits), along with complete instructions, is available at www.gibill.va.gov. The VA will then issue a “Letter of Eligibility” to the veteran, a copy of which should be sent to the registrar’s office at VCFA:

Any questions about veterans’ benefits or the Tuition Assistance Program should be directed to the registrar at [email protected] or 802-828-8724.
