  • Will my GI Bill Education Benefits be impacted by remote delivery of classes?
    • The VA Education Benefits Office at Duke will reach out if they have not already regarding potential impacts to education benefits. Student Veterans of America (SVA) and many others are working diligently to protect benefits from being negatively impacted by this pandemic and are currently working to pass specific legislation on this issue. Stay tuned for more information. 
    • Please know that the VA Education Benefits Office/Registrar will contact you if they need to make any changes to your certification to maintain compliance with VA regulations. 
  • What if I am activated into service in the middle of the semester to help with COVID-19 response?
    • Duke has policies in place to support our military personnel who miss classes for military service. Duke’s Military Call-Up Policy outlines the university response to any students who are called on orders mid-semester.
    • Please note that while the policy references students notifying their Dean, graduate and professional students should go to their program directors/Director of Graduate Studies if they are called up. Students are encouraged to proactively talk with professors and supervisors early in the semester if you think this is possible. 
    • If you have questions or want support communicating the policy with your faculty/school, please contact the Office of Student Veterans
  • I have other questions related to being a serviceman or woman, veteran, or a dependent. What do I do?
    • The Office of Student Veterans is here to support all military-affiliated students. Please send an email to and a staff member will respond to you.
