Veteran Services

Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law welcomes you and extends a heartfelt thank you for your service and sacrifices for our country.  Earning a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from FAMU Law has been made possible to many men and women who are veterans of the U.S Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard, and National Guard and Reserves.  We are extremely honored to assist veterans and their dependents with their educational benefits.

This webpage is designed to provide information and assistance to prospective and current students who are eligible to receive Veteran Affairs (VA) education benefits. FAMU Law Veteran Services is located within the College of Law Registrar’s Office. VA certifying staff serve as a link between the VA and students. Their main function is to certify and report enrollment information to the Veterans Administration to ensure receipt of educational benefits by eligible students.  The Department of Veterans Affairs is your best source for information about all VA education benefits programs.

The College of Law Financial Aid Office is committed to serving as a resource to veteran students and their families. The Financial Aid Office works in conjunction with the College of Law Registrar’s Office regarding Veteran benefits and payment. All sources of student aid have rules that govern how aid should be awarded when a student is receiving Veteran Education Benefits therefore it is important for the College of Law Financial Office and the Registrar to carefully coordinate VA benefits that you receive to ensure we help prevent being over award and avoid the need to repay any portion of aid that you receive.
 
 
Post 9/11 GI Bill and scholarships
 
Some scholarships may reduce the amount of the tuition payment the GI Bill sends. If your scholarship is only allowed to pay tuition, the GI Bill cannot pay that tuition a second time. As Professional Students if your scholarship is meant to pay for costs beyond tuition, you must submit documentation from the scholarship provider to our office to be eligible to receive the scholarship on top of the GI Bill. For students receiving full VA benefits, a complete recalculation of the aid package will occur.
 

The following VA education benefits are available for use at FAMU Law:
