Getting Your COE
Veterans are required to have been discharged or released under other than dishonorable conditions. Minimum service time requirements vary. Do not assume you are not qualified for some reason. Exceptions are made and only by checking your eligibility will you know for sure.
The VA makes a final determination in a formal document called a Certificate of Eligibility. You can obtain your Certificate of Eligibility on your own, but it can take weeks. If you have a VA-approved lender do it for you, it can take seconds.
