There are two Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Offices that handle the various types of educational benefits for veterans in North Carolina:
Veterans Affairs Regional Office, St Louis, Missouri
Veterans Affairs Regional Office, Decatur, Georgia
In the UNCW Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid, the university has established a Veterans Services Coordinator (VSC) position who is responsible for helping students understand services available to them and requirements for obtaining and continuing funding to support veterans in achieving their educational goals at UNCW.
The Office of Scholarships & Financial Aid is located in the Warwick Center and is open from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The VSC is a university position and not part of the VA; however, the VSC works very closely with the two east coast VA offices mentioned above. The VSC and peer counselors are available to assist you in applying for your VA educational benefits and in submitting the official documentation. They also offer guidance and counseling for issues relating to either the university or the VA.
