Apply For Benefits

Follow these steps to start your degree

The first step to enrolling is always to apply for veterans education benefits.

Use our application checklist below to guide you!  Also, please feel free at any time to contact Deb Bateman, Point Park's veterans benefits coordinator, at 412-392-3433 or dbateman@pointpark.edu for assistance.

Easy Application Checklist

  1. Apply for benefits at gibill.va.gov/.  Note: Once benefits are determined, a Certificate of Eligibility will be sent directly to the student.  Students MUST submit a copy to the certifying official at Point Park University.  Please retain this form as it will only be sent once.

  2. Apply for admission to the University.

  3. File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid.  Note: You do not have to wait to be accepted to file a FAFSA. In fact, the earlier you file, the better.  Learn more about completing the FAFSA.

  4. Once accepted for admission, complete the Point Park University Veterans Benefits Card.  This card alerts the Veterans Services Office at the University that you will be requesting benefits.  The VA Once program will send an automated confirmation to the student email when certifications are submitted to the VA.

  5. Register for classes. For questions on how to register for your first semester at Point Park, please contact your admissions counselor/office.
