Enrollment Certification

Student Veteran Services is here to help you access your VA benefits. The three most commonly used VA educational benefits are:

 

To use your benefits, you must go through the VA certification process. A student’s VA certification is completed once they have registered for classes. Students must request VA certification each semester. Students using VR&E or Post-9/11 GI Bill® should request a tuition deferral with Student Accounts. Certification is a two-step process that helps to decrease the amount of debt to the institution and the VA:

After registering for classes, the student submits the certification to start payment for Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) and the book stipend. After the drop date has passed, the Student Veteran Services office will report tuition and fees. Students who drop or add courses throughout the semester should contact the coordinator of Student Veteran Services as soon as possible to avoid overpayment. GI Bill® is the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) registered trademark. More information about education benefits offered by the VA is available at the official U.S. government website at https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.

For New Student Certification, like continuing students, new students should first meet with their academic advisor and then contact the coordinator of Student Veteran Services for the next steps.

eBenefits

eBenefits is a joint VA and DoD web portal that provides a comprehensive suite of self-service resources specifically designed for student veterans. This platform offers a centralized location for accessing a wide range of benefits and services, making it an invaluable tool for those navigating their educational journey with the support of their GI Bill® benefits.

Through eBenefits, student veterans can easily access their up-to-date Enrollment Entitlement, allowing them to track the remaining time available for their GI Bill® benefits. This feature ensures that students can manage their educational planning effectively, avoiding any surprises regarding benefit usage and ensuring they can make informed decisions about their academic progress.

In addition to tracking GI Bill® benefits, eBenefits provides access to various other resources and services. These include managing VA education benefits, checking the status of benefit claims, and accessing official military personnel documents. The portal also offers information on health care benefits, disability compensation, pension, home loan certificates of eligibility, and more. This broad array of services supports veterans in managing both their educational and personal needs.

At Istituto Marangoni Miami, we recognize the importance of providing our student veterans with the resources they need to succeed. We encourage all our veteran students to utilize eBenefits to its fullest potential, ensuring they have the support and information necessary to make the most of their educational benefits.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance (TA) is a benefit paid by the DoD and is usually the first education benefit available to military members. Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application process, and restrictions. TA is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student using military tuition assistance withdraws, they may no longer be eligible for the total TA funds initially awarded.

To comply with the U.S. Department of Defense policy, The New School will return any unearned TA funds on a proportional basis through at least 60 percent of the period for which the funds were provided. TA funds will be returned to the service member’s branch of service (the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, or Air Force). In instances when a service member stops attending because of a military service obligation, The New School will work with them to find solutions to avoid student debt for the returned portion.
