Using military benefits? Here's some information.
Tuition Assistance: If you are Active Duty or actively drilling in the Reserves or National Guard, you may be eligible for Tuition Assistance (TA) through the Department of Defense. If you are planning to use TA, the first order of business is to contact your Educational Services Officer (ESO). Your ESO and your military branch will need to approve your course of study BEFORE classes begin. Please contact your ESO to get clarification on what is required to receive TA. You can contact [email protected] if you have questions that are appropriate for Le Moyne to answer. If you are planning to use TA, Le Moyne asks you to fill out a certification request. This request requires that you be logged in to your Le Moyne account and prompts us to file all necessary information with your branch of service; we will also work with the Bursar's office to ensure that, should we be waiting for TA to be applied to you account, you will not incur late fees on the amount anticipated to be covered by TA. If you are just starting out and are requesting TA before your first semester begins and before you have an activated Le Moyne email account, please contact [email protected]. New rules state that those students who are eligible for both TA and some benefits from Veterans Affairs (VA) may be able to use benefits concurrently. Please contact your ESO and apply for VA benefits as below if you think this is relevant to you.
Veterans Affairs Benefits: If believe you are eligible for benefits through Veterans Affairs (VA), start at va.gov. You can apply for benefits there; when you get a Certificate of Eligibilty or a Notification of Benefits Eligibility, please supply that in person or at [email protected]. VA benefits include Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation and Education), Chapter 33 (GI Bill), and Chapter 35 (Dependents Educational Assistance). If you are eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program, your tuition and fees are covered for as long as your eligibility lasts! In addition to applying for VA benefits, we ask you to fill out a brief certification request to activate those benefits at Le Moyne. This is a secure online form; you will need to be logged in to your Le Moyne account to access it. If you are just starting out and are requesting VA benefits before your first semester begins and before you have an activated Le Moyne email account, please contact [email protected]. We will also work with the Bursar's office to ensure that, should we be waiting for VA benefits to be applied to you account, you will not incur late fees on the amount anticipated to be covered by VA. Please note: if you are a new student and eligible for Yellow Ribbon, and provide us with a Certificate of Eligibilty before your deposit due date, your deposit will be waived.
