Military Frequently Asked Questions

Read below for some of the frequently asked questions regarding military benefits and information for members of the military and their dependents. If you have a question that is not answered below, please feel free to request more information or call us at 877-791-7181.

How can I tell if I am eligible for Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits?

Veterans who have served at least 90 days of active duty service after September 10, 2001 and received an honorable discharge will qualify for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

What is the Yellow Ribbon Program? Does Sacred Heart University participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program?

The Yellow Ribbon Program is a provision of the Post-9/11 GI Bill that allows veterans to attend private schools and graduate programs costing more than the state tuition cap. Participating colleges and universities offer a veterans-only scholarship which the VA will then match up to the full cost of tuition and fees. Sacred Heart University has been a Yellow Ribbon school since 2009.

Does Sacred Heart University have designated veteran specialists to assist with veteran inquiries?

Yes. Dawn Corica is Sacred Heart’s certifying official in the Registrar’s Office, and liaison to the VA. She can be reached via email at coricad@sacredheart.edu to answer questions regarding the application process. 

Is there any specific documentation that is needed from me when applying to Sacred Heart University as a servicemember or veteran?

Yes. Your DD-214 and Certificate of Eligibility need to be sent to Dawn Corica to prove that you are eligible to receive VA benefits. She can be reached via email at coricad@sacredheart.edu

What if I have already been receiving benefits from another school?

Students can fill out a “change of location” (Form 22-1995) and mail it to Sacred Heart’s Certifying Official.
