Wongu University is approved by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) for the training of veterans and other eligible persons. As a veteran, it’s the perfect time to start exploring the field of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine as a career.

The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, as well as state and local government, offers a number of educational assistance programs for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and their dependents. Based on the time and length of service, as well as current status, veterans can be eligible for one or more of these programs. Please note: All students, regardless of what benefits they believe they may be eligible for, should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year.

In order to receive Veteran’s Benefits, the veteran must first establish his/her eligibility with the VA directly. Apply for VA Education benefits by logging on to www.vets.gov. On the first page, you will see four blocks of categories of VA services. Select “Apply for education benefits” in the “Education” block. This will take you to a page of instructions and information on the application process.

In the middle of the page, select the green bar titled, “Find your education benefits form.”  After answering a series of questions, you will be directed to VA Form 22-1990.

Complete VA Form 22-1990.

Once approved, the VA will provide you with your Certificate of Eligibility (COE), which will state which benefits you qualify for and the length of time you have before they expire. Submit the COE to the School Certifying Officer at Wongu Registrar’s office.
