Veterans/Reservists enrolling at Kent State University at Trumbull who plan to apply for Veterans Administration (VA) educational benefits must submit the following to the Kent State Trumbull veterans certifying official:
Copy of their DD214 Form.
Certificate of Release or Discharge from active duty or DD2384.
Notice of Basic Eligibility.
All veterans/reservists are required to complete the necessary Veterans Administration forms to obtain educational benefits and must complete an enrollment certification at the beginning of each semester. Veterans must be enrolled in a degree program in order to receive benefits. Some students who have a parent who is disabled or deceased from a service-connected incident may also be eligible for educational benefits.
The Post 9/11 GI Bill, signed into law on June 30, 2008, will significantly affect the way the GI Bill pays for the cost of your education!

- Verification for Course Certification (Summer 2014)

- Scholarships/ Tuition Assistance
Tuition and fees at all of Kent State University’s campuses are submitted after the second day of each term. Credit hours are submitted as soon as the student submits them to the Veteran Certifying Official in order to ensure that book and housing stipends aren’t delayed. However, we wait until the second day of each term to submit tuition and fees to help prevent debt situations for students due to VA collections policies should a student drop or reduce on or prior to the first day of the term. Please allow 2-4 weeks from the time of submission for the VA to issue payment to the school.
