Make Sure You’re Eligible

If you’re looking at Harrisburg University and are considering taking advantage of the education benefits offered by Veterans Affairs, you will want to first ensure that the VA deems you eligible for those benefits and that it has your chosen course of study on an approved list. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs GI Bill website states who is eligible for education benefits, and the Veterans Online Application website also outlines the forms needed to support an initial application for those benefits. For questions on the GI Bill, you can also call 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551).
