About Johns Hopkins

Veterans

Johns Hopkins is approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission for the training of veterans and the widows and children of deceased veterans under the provisions of the various federal laws pertaining to veterans' educational benefits. Information about veterans' benefits is available at http://www.gibill.va.gov/.

Students eligible for veterans' benefits (excluding Post 911, Chapter 33) register and pay their University bills in the same manner as non-veteran students. Reimbursement is made to the student by the Department of Veterans Affairs on a monthly basis. The amount of reimbursement is governed by the student's rate of pursuit calculated by the number of courses taken during a semester.

Students eligible for Post 911, Chapter 33 veterans' benefits register in the same manner as non-veteran students. A partial tuition payment is made by the Department of Veterans Affairs directly to the university. The amount of payment is governed by the student's eligibility established by the VA. The student is responsible for the remaining tuition.

In all of the above cases, veterans' educational benefits payments cover only a portion of assigned fees. Graduate students whose courses do not carry credit hours will be certified on an equivalent credit basis.

Questions regarding enrollment procedures for the Schools of Arts and Sciences or Engineering may be directed to the VA Certifying Official Mrs. Gail Rauenzahn at: 410-516-7071 or rauey@jhu.edu
in the Office of the Registrar, 75 Garland Hall, 3400 N. Charles St., Baltimore, MD, 21218.

To obtain veterans' educational benefits the student must comply with the following procedures:

Initial Enrollment
Once admitted to the University, the student must obtain an Application for Program of Education or Training (VA Form 22-1990) from the Department of Veterans Affairs at www.gibill.va.gov. A copy of the completed application along with a certified copy of the DD-214, (not required for ACTIVE DUTY), is sent to the VA Certifying Official, Office of the Registrar, 75 Garland Hall, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21218 or faxed to 410-516-6477.

Students who have previously used benefits and are transferring from another university or college will need to obtain a Request for Change of Place of Training (VA Form 22-1995)  from the Department of Veterans Affairs at www.gibill.va.gov. A copy of the completed application along with a certified copy of the DD-214, (not required for ACTIVE DUTY), is sent to the VA Certifying Official, Office of the Registrar, 75 Garland Hall, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21218 or faxed to 410-516-6477.

Eligible dependents of veterans should refer to www.gibill.va.gov to obtain the correct application form depending on the dates of service of the veteran.

The VA will return an official ‚ÄúCertificate of Eligibility‚ÄĚ to the student who should then submit a copy of the certificate to the VA Certifying Official, Office of the Registrar, 75 Garland Hall, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD 21218 or faxed to 410-516-6477. All of the required information may also be submitted via email to rauey@jhu.edu.

Re-enrollment
Students must request certification each semester and should inform the Certifying Official at the time of registration that they wish to be re-certified under the provisions of their original VA Form 22-1990. Students receiving veteran's benefits must take courses that lead toward the exact objective (usually a specific degree) on the original VA application. Otherwise, they must submit a Request for Change of Program (VA Form 22-1995).

Students utilizing veterans' benefits must let their Certifying Official know immediately of any change in their status or program that might affect the amount of their payment from the VA. If they fail to do so, the Department of Veterans Affairs will seek reimbursement from the student for any overpayment.

Standards of Progress
Continuation of VA payments depends on the student's meeting the University's academic standards for all students. The student must also meet any standards of progress which may be established by VA regulations.
