Your role to begin receiving aid

Students who intend to receive VA education benefits should contact the Veterans’ Certification Officer (VCO). Currently, Nancy Geiger (515-271-3095; nancy.geiger@drake.edu) serves in that position at Drake University.

The following steps must be completed prior to a student receiving GI Bill educational benefits for Drake courses:

  1. Students must be admitted to a Drake University program of study.
  2. Contact the Drake University Veterans' Certification Officer (VCO).
  3. Fill out the required forms on the www.gibill.va.gov website. Students must apply for education benefits if they have never received benefits before. If education benefits have been used previous to the student’s Drake enrollment, complete the Change of Place of Training form (Form 22-1995).
