Military-Affiliated Students

  • Will my GI Bill Education Benefits be impacted by remote delivery of classes?
    • With the passage of legislation to protect GI Bill benefits, all School Certifying Officials (SCO) have been instructed by the VA to certify any online/remote courses that would have typically been offered in person as resident credits for all courses with start dates prior to December 21, 2020.
    • If you have more questions about benefits, please contact the VA Education Benefits Coordinator in the Office of the University Registrar:
  • 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.
