Concurrent Enrollment

If a student is obtaining his or her degree at Western and is completing a course at another institution, he or she may be eligible for GI Bill® Education Benefits. Consult with the Veterans Resource Center or Billing and Receivables Office to complete the specific procedures for eligibility determination. Completion of a new Application for VA Education Benefits or a Change of Program/Change in Program may cause a delay in receipt of DVA payments.

The Billings and Receivables Office is responsible for submitting class certifications for the GI Bill® Education Benefits programs to the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Western Illinois University does not make any eligibility determinations as to the receipt or dollar amounts of any funds received by the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, or the U.S. Department of Education.

GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at
