VA Benefits provide eligible veterans, and/or their dependents, with tuition and other assistance to defray educational costs while pursuing their academic career at Casa Loma College.

Applying for Veterans Benefits

Another form of aid, which eligible students may receive, are funds from the United States Veterans Administration (VA).  Casa Loma College is approved by the California State Approving Agency for Veterans Education (CSAAVE) to offer academic programs under Title 38, United States Code, to enroll veterans and other eligible persons who qualify for educational benefits.


Students, considered eligible for benefits by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), will have their enrollment certified by the school’s Veterans Administration School Certifying Official (VASCO) after the filing of the appropriate forms and paperwork.  Benefit and eligibility information is not provided by the College; the ultimate approval of a student’s ability to use a particular VA benefit is determined by the VA.  Veterans applying for VA educational benefits are responsible for knowing the VA eligibility requirements and regulations.  Before the VASCO can certify enrollment for benefits, veterans must first meet the College’s admission requirements, as well as abide by VA regulations.  The VA programs the College participates in and certifies for are as follows:

For Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Ch 33) students and VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (Ch 31) students, our tuition policy complies with 38 USC 3679(e) which means Post 9/11 and Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment students will not be charged or otherwise penalized due to a delay in VA tuition and fee payments.  For eligibility consideration, a Post 9/11 GI Bill® student must submit a VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) letter and a Vocational Rehabilitation Student must provide a VAF 28-1905 form.  All persons seeking enrollment must meet the general admissions policies.  Those seeking to use VA Education Benefits must submit all prior transcripts for a transfer evaluation and submit one of the following; a 22-1990, 22-1995, 22-5490, or a 22-5495 to the VA.  GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website at:  www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
