Get Started

The journey at UNC and using the GI Bill ® and other military benefits begins here. This process may take up to 6-12 months, so it is never too soon. Whether using the Post 9/11 GI Bill ® or other education benefits like Ch 31, 35, or 1606, Veterans Services is here to help!

Reminder: You must certify under your Ursa student account to receive your G.I. Bill ® benefits. Contact us if you need assistance.
