All undergraduate academic programs at Cornish College of the Arts are approved for enrollment by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Formal application for admission to Cornish must be completed through the Office of Admission. Before a student may certified, a student must be accepted for admission and registered for courses. A student who is eligible for and planning to use Chapter 30, 33, 35, 1606, 1607, or Voc Rehab benefits at Cornish should contact the Veteran’s Affairs Coordinator in the Registration & Records office at 206.726.5022.  Students who anticipate receiving Chapter 30, 33, and 35 education benefits must submit a Certificate of Eligibility to the Registration & Records in advance of their first term of attendance.

Any student who is uncertain regarding his or her eligibility for benefits may contact the Department of Veterans Affairs directly by telephone at 888.442.4551.

Receiving VA Education Benefits At Cornish

Before using Veterans Education benefits at Cornish, students must provide the VA Coordinator in the Registration & Records office with a copy of their Certificate of Eligibility.  To obtain a Certificate of Eligibility, apply for the education benefits through the VA. 

A student’s enrollment status is a factor in determining the total amount of funding paid by the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the College must report changes of enrollment status to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Any student who decides to withdraw from a course or courses should contact the Veterans Affairs Coordinator.

The Department of Veterans of Affairs will also only pay for those courses that advance a student’s progression toward a degree and reduce the number of units needed to graduate. Therefore any student who must repeat a course must notify the Veterans Affairs Coordinator. Similarly, any student planning on taking a course at another institution should also contact the Veterans Affairs Coordinator regarding the transferability of credit from the other institution.

A student will automatically be certified each term provided the student remains in good academic standing and continues to make satisfactory academic progress towards graduation.

Should a student be called to active military service while enrolled at Cornish, s/he must contact the Veterans Affairs Coordinator immediately so that the student can be advised about the process for any necessary withdrawals, leave of absence, and/or incomplete grades.
