How to Receive Education Benefit Payments
To receive VA benefits at UNC-CH, you must:
- Be admitted to the university and officially registered for courses.
- Provide a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility letter from the VA or if that document is not yet available, you may submit a copy of your initial application for benefits (22-1990, 22-1990e, or 22-5490).
- Read, sign and return the Agreement for Students Receiving Veterans Educational Benefits. This document is provided to explain the guidelines and responsibilities for receiving payment from the VA and should be submitted before your initial enrollment certification.
- Complete and submit the UNC-CH Veterans Educational Benefits Enrollment Data Form from your UNC email address.
After completion, all documents may be emailed, faxed, or mailed to the UNC-CH Veteran Services office:
