VA Benefits—Current Active Duty Service Members

Students who are currently serving active duty in the military may use any VA Education Benefits for which they are currently eligible.

Eligible students may wish to use Tuition Assistance, a Department of Defense (DoD) program. Students who wish to do so should contact the Cashiers and Student Accounts Office at 336/334-5831.

*Effective January 1, 2015: VA Education Benefits can no longer be used for courses for which Tuition Assistance (TA) is being used.

Chapter 30 MGIB “Top Up” may be used to pay for the remaining costs after use of TA.

Chapter 33 Benefits may still be certified, but will only pay for costs beyond those covered by TA.
