Announcement for VA-Funded Students

at Bottega University

Effective July 7, 2023, Bottega University has ceased acceptance of VA funding for new veterans seeking enrollment or re-enrollment in its programs of study.

Bottega will continue to support veterans and family members through other low-cost student loans and non-interest bearing payment programs. The University will also continue to support continuously enrolled students with certified VA-funding in accordance with VA regulations.

Bottega’s authorization to offer educational opportunities for veterans and their families has been revoked by the Veterans Administration due to the ending of the waiver from compliance with Public Law 116-315, Section 1015, which requires institutions offering educational services to veterans and family members seeking to use Veteran Administration funds to also participate in Federal Student Financial Aid programs under the Department of Education’s Title IV regulations.

Bottega University continues to honor its mission to leverage advances in innovative technologies and educational models to provide high-quality, flexible, and affordable distance education programs so students can attain recognized degrees that advance their careers and improve their lives.

Please contact Zach Koon (, Bottega University’s School Certifying Official (SCO), if you have questions about this matter or wish to learn about other tuition-funding options.
