It is important that veteran and military-affiliated students include their full name and Panther ID number with their COE so our team can update your status. Providing the VMA with a copy of your VA Certification of Eligibility (COE) can also include a “Statement of Benefits” obtained from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) website. This can include eBenefits or an approval/acceptance letter for chapter 31 (VR&E).
