Veterans Educational Benefits
CSM is approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Maryland Higher Education Commission, so that eligible veterans, servicepersons, and certain dependents of veterans can receive VA educational benefits. The Registrar’s Office is not the Veterans Administration. We do not determine your eligibility for veterans benefits. We do, however, provide you with the appropriate paperwork to apply to the VA for benefits. We are responsible for certifying your enrollment status to the VA, which is what gets you paid.
IMPORTANT POLICY UPDATE FOR VRAP STUDENTS Download (.doc) The VA will not pay for audited courses or courses that do not count toward your program of study at CSM.
