The staff of the Veterans Affairs Office welcomes all veterans, eligible dependents, members of the Guard and Reserves, and Active Duty personnel to Norfolk State University. Your Veterans Affairs federal and state education benefits are part of your compensation for the time devoted to or spent serving your country. They are designed to help you afford a college education.
Active duty service-members, veterans, and their qualified dependents may be eligible for VA educational benefits authorized under specific chapters of Title 38 of the U.S. Code. This office provides specialized customer services and information to assist students in establishing eligibility applications and supporting documents. Only the Department of Veterans Affairs can determine student eligibility for benefits. The primary function of this office is to certify and report enrollment information to the VA to facilitate the receipt of benefits by eligible students.
