Parents/Spouse of Dependents 

If your dependent will be receiving benefits under the Chapter 33 Post 9-11 transfer option, they should submit a VA certificate of eligibility or a copy of your 1990E application. 

There are  step by step instructionsregarding the transfer process. Paperwork should then be emailed to [email protected] (or to [email protected] in the case of graduate students at Kenan Flagler Business School).

Veterans Readiness and Employment (VR&E)

If you’re a Veteran or service member with a service-connected disability that impacts your ability to work, the Veteran Readiness and Employment program (formerly called Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment) may be able to help fund your Carolina education. As with Chapter 33/35 benefits, the first step is to apply through the Department of Veterans Affairs. With the assistance of your VR&E counselor, you'll certify your benefits at Carolina using the same process as for CH 33/35 above.

Benefits & In-State Tuition

Per UNC System Office policy, any student utilizing VA benefits will get an in-state tuition rate regardless of North Carolina residency status. Any questions about residency status should be directed to [email protected].
