Veterans Benefits and GI Bill

The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is an accredited school recognized by the Veterans Administration (VA). Through the VA, entitled Veterans may receive financial assistance for education.

In order to certify students for Veterans Benefits, the Financial Aid Office requires the following documents:

  1. VA form DD-214
  2. VA form 22-1990 OR 22-1995
  3. Certificate of Eligibility (provided by VA after receipt of VA form 22-1990 or 22-1995)
  4. Initial Disclosures for Certification of Veterans Benefits to be submitted upon initial certification
  5. SBTS Veteran Certification Request Form to be submitted each semester **

**We highly recommend submitting the Veteran Certification Request Form at least one month prior to the opening of billing in order to receive tuition benefits prior to the payment due date. During peak financial aid seasons please allow for two weeks processing from the time your request is submitted to the Financial Aid Office.

For specific questions regarding benefits, please contact the VA at 1.888.442.4551, or visit the GI Bill Web Site.
