Veterans Benefits Certification Request Form
Per US Department of Veterans Affairs, any student seeking to use VA education benefits must submit a Veterans Benefits Certification Request Form for each enrollment period to the School Certifying Official (SCO). Your enrollment as a student will not be certified until you submit a VCR for each enrollment period for which you are seeking to receive benefits. For Fall, Spring, Summer you will need to submit one separate form for each semester. It will cover all terms within that semester. We encourage you to complete the form within 30 days of the start of the term. Below is the link to initiate the process. Once you submit the documentation, please allow 5 days for the estimated benefit to be reflected on your student account statement at Lynn University. The form can be completed here.
Yellow Ribbon Program
Lynn University participates in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program), which is a provision of the Post – 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The institution is in agreement with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses, and the VA will match the same amount as the institution.
For the 2021-2022 academic year, Lynn University ‘s commitment to the Yellow Ribbon program is capped at $13,000 for undergraduate, $6,000 for graduate and $5,000 for doctoral students, which means the Veterans Administration (VA) will also commit to $13,000 for undergraduate, $6,000 for graduate and $5,000 for doctoral students.
The Ch. 33 benefits will cover $26,042, bringing the total VA benefits up to $52,042 for undergraduate students. Additional costs beyond $52,042 will be borne by the undergraduate student.
For graduate and doctoral program students, the Veteran benefit of $26,042 and the Yellow Ribbon will cover the students’ total tuition, if they are enrolled in six (6) credit hours per term. Additional costs will be borne by the student.
