How to Apply for Benefits and Financial Aid
- Determine which benefit is best for you: Use the GI Bill® Road Map for Success or call the VA at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551).
- Complete the Veterans Online Application to apply for your benefits.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) (www.fafsa.ed.gov)
- Submit a copy of your Certification of Eligibility letter and a completed MCCN Veterans Benefits Certification Request Form prior to each academic year in which you plan to utilize any veteran’s benefits.
After you’ve begun classes, notify MCCN Financial Services if there's a change in the total number of credit hours for which you're registered because this affects your certification.
