The Office of Military Services doesn't manage Veterans Affairs benefits, but it can help you navigate what might seem to be a maze of forms and procedures. We'll help you do what you need to do to qualify for the benefits you've earned.
Certify Your Benefits
Request that your benefits be certified by submitting a Veterans Registration and Reporting Form (VRRF) before the first day of class each semester. If you change your schedule after turning this form in, you must file a change request.
To receive this financial assistance, you're required to follow a specific series of steps, as determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
- Apply for or update your education benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs.
- Submit your Certificate of Eligibility to Mason if you're a new student. Bring or email a copy to the Office of Military Services in SUB 1 on the Fairfax Campus.
- Submit a Veterans Registration and Reporting Form (VRRF) to get your benefits certified.
- Beneficiaries of aid distributed through Chapter 30 and Chapter 1606 of the GI Bill must verify enrollment monthly, either through Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) or by calling 1-877-823-2378.
