1.  How do I know which chapter(s) of the GI Bill I qualify for?

You may be eligible for more than one benefit.  Contact the St. Louis Regional Processing Office for assistance, 888-442-4551.

2.  Once admitted, how do I use my GI Bill benefits?

If you have not used your benefits before, you can apply for GI Bill educational benefits online by clicking here.

If you have already used some of your benefits elsewhere, you must complete the Request for Change of Program or Place of Training: VA Form 22-1995.

You must also fill out the Annual Benefit Request Form and submit it to a Walsh College School Certifying Official 

3. Can I be concurrently enrolled at a community college and at Walsh College while using the GI Bill?

Yes.  In this case, Walsh will be considered your parent school and the community college will be considered your secondary school. You will be certified at both institutions for the dates you are enrolled – as long as the courses at the community college are required for degree completion at Walsh College. The VA will pay for the tuition and fees based on the enrollment status for the overlapped credits. Contact the Walsh College School Certifying Officials to start this process.

4. How do I switch my GI Bill to Walsh College if I have used it somewhere else?

If you have already used some of your benefits elsewhere, you must fill out the Request for Change of Program or Place of Training: VA Form 22-1995.

You must also complete the Annual Benefit Request Form and submit to a Walsh College School Certifying Official

5. How do I certify my registered courses through the VA (Not Required for Post 9/11)?

You must certify yourself online through the VA’s Web Automated Verification of Enrollment system, also known as WAVE.

6. How does my enrollment get certified at Walsh?

Once you have submitted all of your required paperwork, Walsh Veteran Certifying Officials will automatically certify your enrollment on the first day of the withdrawal period for each term. This ensures that students can change classes without additional VA paperwork. However, Walsh College is pleased to certify your enrollment sooner upon your request. Once you have registered, simply send an email (from your Walsh email account) to veterans@walshcollege.edu, requesting certification at an earlier date.

7. How do my Military Obligations affect my classes?

If you have received training/deployment orders, we will try our best to coordinate your courses to fit your individual needs. Please contact us to inititate this process, once you have received your military orders

8.  I am back from serving. What happens now?

After settling back in, contact a School Certifying Official or an Academic Advisor.  It is highly recommended that you review the current and former versions of your academic program with an advisor to determine whether or not the newer version offers you a better fit toward degree completion. You may have the option to move to the newest version of your program or stay in the program you were in prior to training/deployment. Based on your decision, the College may need to update your academic file. 

9. What if my spouse receives Permanent Change of Station orders?

If your spouse receives Permanent Change of Station orders, we will work to accommodate you with your classes to the best of our abilities.

10. Will I, as a military family member, receive the same assistance on campus as the veteran/service member would?

We offer the same outstanding service to the families of our veterans/service members.
