SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING YOUR BENEFITS: Roberts Wesleyan College reserves the right to reduce a student's Roberts funded financial aid (including merit aid) if the total of the student's grants and scholarship from all sources, including military, meets or exceeds the cost of tuition except where specifically addressed by regulation (i.e. PELL grants).
Researching Your Federal and State Benefits
- Federal: Contact the Veterans Administration to find out what benefits you qualify for under your military service contract or visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website. Many Veterans qualify for more than one type of benefit, so you need to determine which benefit would help you best achieve your educational goals. To do this, you can use the Benefits Comparison Tool at the Department of Veterans Affairs website, or you call them at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Central time Monday thru Friday.
- State: See if you qualify for any state Veterans educational benefits. Visit this web page for information about the New York State Veterans Tuition Award (NYSVTA).
Apply For Benefits Online Or Via USPS Mail
- Online:You can apply online for education benefits through VONAPP on the Veterans Administration website. Use the paperwork you gathered in Step Three to apply. You may need to scan these documents and upload them.
- USPS Mail: Another way to apply for benefits is through mailing Form 22-1990 to the VA Regional Processing Office. Remember that when you mail the form you will need to mail in copies of all the paperwork you gathered in Step Three.
