Student Veteran Association

Since September 2013, the Regis Student Veteran Association has been engaged with many service projects and recognition ceremonies. As a private institution, the focus of the school resides within the Jesuit tradition, i.e. that of academics and service. This culture is very much in line with veteran ethics and traditions.

To date, the RSVA  has taken part in numerous events both on and off campus, including a Lyons, CO flood cleanup and restoration project, the opening of the Student Veteran Resource Center on the Northwest Denver campus, organizing the first annual Veteran's Day Ceremony, coordinating recognition of veterans at graduation, and establishing an RSVA scholarship.


Military to Civilian Career Transition

When transitioning from the military to a civilian career, you will find many options. Searching for a job that is a good 'career fit' and utilizes your transferable skills (and conforms to your separation date) can be difficult, but it can also be challenging and exciting. 

If you are in the process of transitioning to civilian life after a career in the military and are unsure of where to start, join Regis' Center for Career and Professional Development for a Military to Civilian Transition Workshop.

Frequently Asked Questions

A Certificate of Eligibility is a document issued by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) that states your eligibility to receive VA benefits.

Certificates are issued by the VA after approving a claim for benefits. To submit a claim for benefits please use VONAPP (VA Online Application) at gibill.va.gov. Initial claims can be filed on Form 22-1990.

Processing times vary based on VA workload. On average, the Department of Veterans Affairs processes a Certificate of Eligibility within 4-6 weeks.

Generally, veterans with a minimum of 36 months of active duty service qualify for the 100% benefit rate may qualify for Yellow Ribbon. To determine eligibility, veterans must apply for Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits with the VA. The VA will issue a Certificate of Eligibility which lists your eligibility for Yellow Ribbon. You will then need to check with your VA representative to see if your program qualifies.

Online courses are subject to 50% of the national average in BAH. Online students receive BAH, but at a lower rate than the University’s classroom rate. To receive BAH, both the online and classroom-based students must be more than part-time status.

VA students must be above the 0.50 rate of pursuit to receive BAH. Only Chapter 33 and Chapter 31 (Voc Rehab) students receive BAH.

Hybrid/Blended courses can be certified as in-classroom as long as one classroom-based session is listed in the course offering and attended.

For undergraduate students, 12 credit hours per 16-week semester or 6 credit hours per 8-week term is considered full-time.  For graduate students, 6 credit hours per 16-week semester or 3 credit hours per 8-week term is considered full-time.

The VA makes payment directly to the veteran by (1) direct deposit or (2) mailing a check to the mailing address on file at the VA. To establish or change your direct deposit information, click on the Direct Deposit Enrollment Form link after you have logged into WAVE. Changes and enrollments are usually processed the next business day.

Under Montgomery GI Bill®(Ch 30 and 1606) and REAP: If you attend school, you must verify your enrollment each month by using the WAVE or IVR system or by calling the toll-free 1.877.823.2378. Remember that you cannot be paid for a month until the month is over and you verify that you were still in attendance for that month.

Under Post-9/11 GI Bill®: The VA will send the tuition and fees directly to Regis University. The VA will send a book stipend (if applicable) directly to you near the beginning of the term (or once your enrollment is processed). The VA will send the housing allowance (if applicable) directly to you at the end of each month you have an enrollment.

Under Dependent and Eligible Spouse: The VA will pay the student directly via check.
