2. Use the VA Comparison Tool/Payment Rates to determine which benefit is the best for you.
3. Apply online for your veterans educational benefits at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs web site. Apply as early as possible to receive your Certificate of Eligibility and submit it to the Military & Veterans Education Office.

The Military & Veterans Education Office (MVEO) supports military personnel, veterans and their families as they navigate their benefits and their time at Tyler. MVEO staff are all veterans who understand where you have been and excited to help you achieve your goals.
In addition to the MVEO, the Student Veterans Organization offers opportunities for military-affiliated Tyler students to connect and give back to their community.
The Virginia State Approving Agency (SAA), is the approving authority of education and training programs for Virginia. Their office investigates complaints of GI Bill beneficiaries. While most complaints should initially follow school grievance policy, if the situation cannot be resolved at the school, the beneficiary should contact the Virginia State Approving Agency.
