If you are a returning student who has utilized VA education benefits, review this information specific to you. 

Returning Paperwork

Returning veterans and dependents who have previously used benefits at Stanford will need to submit updated eligibility documentation annually.  

For those applicable, there is no need to resubmit the dd-214 unless a subsequent period of service has changed their eligibility


Upon completion of a program, Stanford is required to submit notice of graduation to VA. 

Students should anticipate an automated termination notice if benefits were used in their final term in a program. This notice is system-generated and does not mean the term was cancelled, but that the program is complete.
