Military Service Center Orientation

If you plan to receive military benefits through the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs for payment toward tuition and fees, you MUST attend one of the following sessions to process and receive your benefits.

Students admitted for the Spring 2016 semesters should contact the Military Service Center for session dates and times.

Students will need to have an application for benefits on file with the VA prior to attending an Orientation session. If you have not applied for military benefits through the VA, contact our Certifying Official, Cheryl Karnikowski at the Military Service Center at 419.530.1392 or for assistance with this process.

Students who have already processed their application with the VA are asked to bring their Certificate of Eligibility and a copy of your DD-214 to the Orientation session.

In order to best serve each student, please contact the Military Service Center and indicate which session you plan to attend along with which Chapter of benefits you plan to receive.
