to be approved by the State Approving Agency of Ohio to offer veterans education benefits to eligible Veterans and Military.

It is our honor and privilege to assist our Veteran and Military personnel with their earned military benefits. An FAI Certifying School Official is ready to help you navigate through the process, ensuring receipt of your entitled benefits for education at FAI, Federal Aerospace Institute.

What is a School Certifying School Official? The School Certifying Official (SCO) is a representative of an educational institute or training establishment who is authorized to submit enrollment certification to DVA (Department of Veterans Affairs) for VA education benefits.

What is the first step? If you haven’t applied for benefits, you may do so at www.benefits.va.gov or call 888-442-4551, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET.

What if I already received approval for benefits through Veterans Affairs? We can proceed with enrollment, but will require a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) for our files. If you do not have a COE, please visit www.ask.va.gov or call 888-442-4551 to obtain a copy.
NOTE: If you do not have the COE at the time of enrollment, it will not affect enrollment eligibility.
