Admissions for student Veterans

Veterans who wish to use their VA Educational Benefits should apply online and complete either the VA Form 22-1990 or VA Form 22-5490 to receive a Certificate of Eligibility. Submit the following documents to the Certifying Official at the Goodwin University Registrar's Office:

  • Certificate of Eligibility
  • Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty - DD-214
  • All prior transcripts including JST

We strongly encourage students to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see if they qualify for additional student aid. Check with the Financial Aid Office for aid eligibility.
