Veteran’s Benefits

Averett University is approved by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs for veteran’s benefits. Averett’s School Certifying Officials for the traditional and Averett Online programs are located in Main Hall 120 in Averett Central. The VA Certifying Officials for students can be reached at 434-791-5766 or by emailing [email protected]

Veterans’ educational benefits must be considered when calculating a student’s eligibility for financial aid, and the student is responsible for reporting this information to the Financial Aid Office. Students receiving VA benefits must provide a letter of confirmation from the Department of Veterans Affairs to the Financial Aid Office. Please see additional veterans’ benefits information here.

Post 9/11 Additional VA Benefits

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and TAPS  recently started working together to ensure surviving family members are connected to their VA benefits. This includes the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John D. Fry scholarship , which provides Post-9/11 GI Bill® education benefits to children of Service members who died in the line of duty after Sept. 10, 2001. The benefit includes full in-state tuition and fees, a monthly housing allowance and a books and supplies stipend.

By working with non-profit organizations like TAPS helps us stay connected and ensure all eligible dependents know – and use – the Fry Scholarship, hosting economic competitiveness summits across the country, and launching new online employment tools, we continue to work hard to connect transitioning Service members, Veterans and their family members with meaningful employment and rewarding careers.

Traditional Students: VA Education Benefits certifications are not automatically submitted each semester. Traditional students are required to complete the semester certification request once they have registered for classes. If the semester certification request is not submitted each semester Averett will mark the student down has not using VA Education benefits for that semester.
