Veteran’s Services

Becker College welcomes and supports Veterans and their dependents.

Our goal is to assist student Veterans and eligible dependents with the application and certification of their Veterans education benefits.

All prospective and current students interested in using their Veterans education benefits are encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office at, by phone at 508.373.9429, or in person (no appointment necessary).  Allen Cowett, Director of Financial Aid, is the Veteran Affairs School Certifying Official (SCO). The role of the SCO is to serve as the liaison with the Regional Processing Office in Buffalo, NY.

Request Certification of VA Benefits Each Semester

It is the student’s responsibility to notify the SCO in the Registrar’s Office every semester once you have registered for classes and also if you change your schedule. The SCO certifies students every semester with the VA for the number of credits registered.  If the student does not contact the SCO, s/he will not be certified for benefits with the VA.
