    Federal VA Educational Benefits at Hamline

    If you have applied for your educational benefits through the VA and need Hamline to certify your enrollment, please contact the School Certifying Official Stella Ryan at sryan04@hamline.edu. The School Certifying Official will need:

    • One-time submission of the online certification request form (required for students using benefits for the first time at Hamline beginning with the 16/17 year and forward)
    • A Certificate of Eligibility (COE) or Notice of Basic Eligibility (NOBE)
    • Copy 4 of your DD214

    After this your enrollment will be submitted to the VA each term unless you request otherwise.

    If you are not sure what kind of educational benefits you may qualify for, or are interested in looking into non-educational benefits, please contact Duane Bauer, the Central Metro Veteran Assistance Coordinator for the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs at duane.bauer@state.mn.us or 612-310-0492.
