Military Educational Benefits

Benefits and Information:

Delayed VA Payments

Under S2248 PL 115-407 Section 103, Wentworth Institute of Technology will not impose a late fee, denial of access to facilities, or other penalty against a veteran or eligible dependent due to a late payment of tuition and/or fees from the VA up to the certified benefits amount.  Any portion of the student bill not covered by VA benefits is still expected to be settled by the due date.

Military-Connected Students will work with the Office of Military-Connected Services to complete the following steps:

  •  Obtain your DD-214/Separation papers (if applicable)
  • Apply for benefits through the VA (If you have not already done sone
    • Once approved, the VA will send you a Certificate of Eligibility (COE)
    • You can also find your COE through your eBenefits account
  • Send COE and DD-214 to military@wit.edu and include:
    • Full name
    • Wentworth ID number
