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.
