The OU College of Professional and Continuing Studies is committed to helping veterans, active duty personnel, and dependents to utilize their G.I. Bill® education benefits. Our Certification and Compliace staff members provide students with helpful VA education benefit information, certify students’ courses for payment by the VA, and act as a liaison for the student to VA Education.
G.I. Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
Students who have not yet applied for VA benefits can apply here, https://www.vets.gov/education/apply/.
Students who have used their benefits in the past will need to update their application with a VA Form 22-1995. It can be found here, https://www.vabenefits.vba.va.gov.
Please provide us with a copy of your VA education Certificate of Eligibility (COE). The VA will send you a copy of your COE after you apply for benefits, change your school information, or use your benefits. To send us a copy, log in at https://va.outreach.ou.edu/ with your OUNetID (4+4) and password. Click, “Add Certificate” and upload the appropriate file.
Each term, after course enrollment is completed, log in at https://va.outreach.ou.edu/ using your OUNetID (4+4) and password, and follow the steps below:
Certifications are submitted to the VA starting at the beginning of each semester. If a request is received prior to the start of the semester, the request will be held until it can be processed. For additional assistance with this process, please contact our office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
