Submitting an Online Claim

Purpose:
To be used by students currently receiving veterans educational benefits at CSN, to report registered classes for certification to the Department of Veterans Affairs.  First-time CSN students, students declaring a change of major, Supplemental Enrollment students, or students returning to CSN after an absence of longer than one year, should not use Online VA Claim Submission, but should contact the CSN Veterans' Affairs Office for  instructions.  For these students, additional documentation is required.

This capability is not currently available to Vocational Rehabilitation students.

Important Reminder:
Students are sent letters reminding them of the need to have prior civilian and military education evaluated, and to have the evaluation results presented to the CSN VA Office.  Failure to comply with this letter can prevent the processing of your claim.

STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING:

  1. I understand that I must contact the CSN Veterans' Affairs Office, each semester, AFTER I register, to continue the receipt of my benefits and that I must report any change in enrollment to CSN Veteran Affairs Office. (It is best to register early, if possible, so your claim can be processed at the earliest possible date)
  2. I understand I must submit a degree plan for my chosen course of education leading to a standard college degree or certificate and have all prior training evaluated by the end of my second full-term semester. This evaluation result must be presented to the CSN Veterans' Affairs Office.  I do not expect to be paid by the VA for courses previously passed or for courses not required for my chosen objective or major, and that I must make satisfactory progress toward graduation to continue receipt of benefits.
  3. I understand that a grade of "W" or "I" may result in reduced payment from the VA and that the VA will not pay for audit classes.   I further understand that a grade of "I" must be completed within one year to prevent its conversion to a failing (F) grade.
  4. I understand that courses of other-than-normal semester term length may be paid at a different rate based on the number of credits and length of the course.
  5. I understand the VA will hold me responsible for any overpayment of my educational benefits.  In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-579), I authorize official representatives of the College of Southern Nevada to review and discuss my record concerning educational benefits with official representatives of the Department of Veterans' Affairs.
  6. I understand that benefit payments are always paid one month in arrears and initial payment of benefits may sometimes be delayed depending on the CSN VA and Regional Processing Offices' workloads.
  7. I understand that by submitting this form electronically, I certify, to the best of my knowledge, that all the information entered is true and that I have read, understand and agree to all conditions listed above.

 

Please, do not submit more than one claim for the same semester!
