Eastern Virginia Medical School proudly considers itself a veteran-friendly school and has established the I-SERVED (Incoming Students Entitled to Reimbursement for Veterans with Eligible Documents) secondary fee reimbursement program to thank applicants who have served in the United States military. Using the I-SERVED program, applicants are eligible for reimbursement of their EVMS secondary application fee accrued during the application process.

Rules and restrictions of the Veterans I-SERVED Program

  1. Application for reimbursement is open to incoming MD students with documentation of prior military service and may only be submitted after acceptance and matriculation to EVMS.                   
  2. Eligible documentation of prior service includes at least one of the following:
              Original Honorable/Medical Discharge Certificate,
              Original DD-214 or               
              VA Identification Card
  3. HPSP recipients and students under inherited GI Bill benefits do not necessarily qualify for reimbursement unless documentation of prior military service is also provided.               
  4. Eligible students must submit application and documentation to Admissions no later than Sept. 30 of the year of their matriculation (M1).                
  5. Students who fail to meet the Sept. 30 deadline forfeit entitlement eligibility.

Note: Certificates with "Less than Honorable Discharge" will not be considered for this benefit.
