Please note: Your VA educational benefits will impact certain financial aid eligibility. Veterans benefits will be included as a financial resource in your financial aid award package and may reduce state grants, University grants, federal loans and work study, and private loans. Each financial aid award type is different, so the VA benefit may affect each personís award differently. Please contact Student Financial Services for questions about how your Veterans benefits may impact your financial aid at sfs@virginia.edu or 434.982.6000.

*The Virginia State Approving Agency (SAA) is the approving authority of education and training programs for Virginia. Our office investigates complaints of GI Bill beneficiaries. While most complaints should initially follow the school grievance policy, if the situation cannot be resolved at the school, the beneficiary should contact our office via email saa@dvs.virginia.gov.
