VA Benefits

Educational benefits through the Dept. of Veterans Affairs are designed to provide eligible individuals with an opportunity for educational and career growth. They can be an incredible asset when used appropriately to assist students in obtaining their educational goals.

It is critical that you understand how to use your benefits in accordance with The Citadel, state and federal VA policies, along with administrative procedures in order to maximize their potential and minimize your out-of-pocket costs.


The Veterans Service Office at The Citadel provides many services. These services include, but not limited to:

  • Assisting in the application process for VA educational benefits
  • Notifying the VA of enrollment or changes to enrollment
  • Assisting in explaining, interpreting, and implementing VA policies along with The Citadel's regulations
  • Liaison between students and different departments on campus
