Veteran Education Benefits

CalSouthern is committed to helping our nation’s veterans develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed and advance in today’s workforce. We offer continuously updated, career-relevant degrees, and provide veterans with a dedicated support team led by a military advisor specially trained in the unique issues and challenges faced by military and veteran students.

In addition to waiving the application fee and offering discounted tuition to veterans and their spouses and dependents, CalSouthern is authorized to accept educational benefits under the Department of Veterans Affairs Chapters 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 1606 and 1607.

To apply for benefits under Chapters 30, 32, 33, 34, 1606 and 1607, simply follow these four steps:

Step 1

To apply online visit and apply as a new VONAPP user. If you would rather mail in your application please complete VA form 22-1990 (22-5490 for those applying under Chapter 35) and mail to:

VA Regional Office
P. O. Box 8888
Muskogee, OK 74402-8888

If you have already completed VA form 22-1990 and have previously used any of your military education benefits through your GI Bill, please complete VA form 22-1995 (22-5495 for those applying under Chapter 35) (Change of Program or Place of Training Form) and send it to your CalSouthern military-designated enrollment advisor (contact at 1.800.477.2254).

Step 2

Once the VA has processed your paperwork, you will be sent your Certificate of Eligibility (COE). You will need to make a copy of your COE and send it to your CalSouthern military-designated enrollment advisor.

Step 3

Contact your CalSouthern military-designated enrollment advisor (1.800.477.2254) to discuss the enrollment process and any other documentation that may be required.

Step 4

Once CalSouthern has finalized your enrollment, you will be contacted by your military academic advisor and the School Certifying Official (SCO) who will introduce themselves and answer any questions you may have. Upon completion of your new learner orientation, you will register for your first term. Once your courses are approved by your advisor, the SCO will submit the enrollment certification for each term based on the information provided on your Certificate of Eligibility.
