Veteran Education Benefits

In cooperation with the US Department of Veterans Affairs and the US Department of Defense, Plymouth State University participates in numerous Veterans Educational Benefits programs. Students who are eligible for Veterans benefits as determined by the Veterans Administration must contact Registrar’s Office at the time of application. Applications for Veterans Educational Benefits may be obtained directly from the Veterans Administration. A copy of your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) is required for verification and certification. Once you receive your COE, submit a copy to the Certifying Official in the Registrar’s Office. Your military experience may be applied to college credit ultimately reducing the amount of time it may take you to complete your undergraduate degree. Please arrange for your military transcripts to be sent to Plymouth State University Office of Admissions as noted below.

The Registrar’s Office Veteran’s Certifying Official accepts paperwork to assist students in receiving their VA education benefits. Enrollment certifications are completed by this office and reported to the appropriate VA regional office (Buffalo, NY). We are approved to accept veterans educational benefits, participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, and abide by the Principles of Excellence.
