Veterans Benefits

Hello, and welcome to Veteran’s Services for B-Unique Beauty and Barber Academy. This webpage was developed in an effort to help you navigate the required processes in order to use your education benefit.

B-Unique Academy is committed to giving back to those who serve our country and the family members who support those service members. Our Financial Aid staff look forward to assisting with you VA Education Benefits and entitlements, also guiding your through the enrollment verification process.

B-Unique Academy is an approved institution for the education and training of veterans, reservists and the children and spouses of deceased or 100% “total and permanently” (with no further exams pending) disabled veterans. Our Admissions Office helps those who are eligible to obtain Veterans Educational Benefits. We will help direct you through the application process, and work as an instructional and advisory aid between the Department of Veterans Affairs and you as a BUBBA student.

Students who wish to use veterans’ educational benefits should identify themselves to our Admissions team as soon as possible so that proper enrollment certification procedures can be initiated for your program. If you don’t know what Chapter you are claiming, please contact the Department of Veterans Affairs (1-888-442-4551).

Steps to using your VA Educational Benefits: 

  1. If you are eligible for VA education benefits, you will need to complete and submit an application (VA form 22-1990) to the regional Veterans Administration Office. Begin the application process on the GI Bill Website.
  2. After submitting the application, you will receive written notification explaining the VA’s decision regarding your eligibility for the benefit program you applied for. If you are eligible, you will receive a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) that specifies your eligible program, benefit rate, and length of eligibility. Once you receive your COE and are deemed eligible, you will need to submit a copy of your COE to the Financial Aid Office.
  3. Once you are enrolled at B-Unique, a VA Certification Application must be completed and turned in for certification (depending on the applicable Chapter) the recipients wish to use their VA education benefits. Benefits will not pay unless this form is completed each semester.
