Veteran Benefits

American University's Graduate Professional Studies is approved for Chapter 33 eligible-Post 911 Benefits. As you transition from your role in the military, Graduate Professional Studies can be an excellent way to start working towards a graduate degree or to gain more experience in the classroom or in the workplace in a new field.

Veterans entering American University who have never applied for Veteran Benefits, must apply through the Veterans Administration website. After applying for benefits and registering for classes, students must fill out a Certification of Enrollment form for VA Benefits and submit it to the Veteran Services Administrator in AU Central.

To receive the Certification of Enrollment form or to discuss further how Veteran Benefits can be used for Graduate Professional Studies, please contact Valerie Verra, Veteran Services Administrator, at vverra@american.edu or 202-885-8012.
