Using your benefits at RRU

If you are approved for benefits you will be issued a certificate of eligibility by the VA.
Please email a copy of your certificate of eligibility to financialaid@royalroads.ca. We will complete a VA Enrollment Certification (VA Form 22-1999) and submit it to the VA.

  • If you receive education benefits under Chapter 35 the VA will send the money directly to you.
