Approval Process Information

Georgia Tech School Certifying Official (SCO)
The SCO will review your order within 5 to 10 business days and complete the VA certification process.

Your COE must be submitted, with your registration, at least 2 weeks prior to the start date of the first course in your program to allow the SCO enough time for the decision review.

  • If your order is determined to be complete, you will receive a final email notice that provides links to your course(s) to review specific details (location, meeting times and any special instructions).
  • If your order is determined to be incomplete, you will receive a phone call or email from the SCO to resolve the issues associated with your course registration.

Important Information

  • Students are responsible for unpaid tuition not covered by VA Education Benefits. The VA covers only the cost of tuition for the course.
  • If books, materials, or meals are included in the cost of the course, be prepared to provide payment of these fees prior to certification and registration confirmation.
  • Expect to be contacted by the GTPE Registrar's office for payment if the SCO determines payment is due for course-related non-tuition charges.
  • Course attendance verification will be made prior to submitting payment certification to the VA.
  • Changing course selection after being certified to use VA Education Benefits will impact payment and may lead to student debt owed to the VA.
