New: Zoom meeting for understanding VA benefits. 

Dear Student Veterans (chapter 33) Starting fall quarter I will be sending out a Zoom link and hosting a understanding  of what and how to use your Chapter 33 benefits (only for those STUDENT VETERANS USING CHAPTER 33). Zoom meeting will be held on Wednesday starting at the beginning of the quarter. Please email Matthew Durkee at matthew.durkee@edmonds.edu or call (425) 640-1775 to setup a time. 


Beginning on and after December 17, 2021 student who are using their Post-9/11 Gi Bill here at Edmonds will need to verify their Enrollment at the end of each month. Failure to verify for two consecutive months will impact your Monthly Housing Allowance (MAH) and/or kicker payments here at Edmonds and all state colleges. Students, please go to Department of VA Education to sign up for either a text messaging from VA as this will also help with you verifying your enrollment status.  

Also, we are now required to certify twice per months to verify your enrollment per quarter per new rules set forth by VA Education. This means we will certify you before the Add drop/ and after the Add drop period of each quarter.

If you have any questions please contact us here in the Veteran Resource Center.
