Veteran Benefits

The university is fully approved for the education of veterans and veterans’ dependents under both federal and state programs. New students who qualify for benefits should report to the Veterans Educational Benefits Coordinator in the Office of Records and Registration, 116 Graff Main Hall, after class registration. After this initial contact, registered students should keep the benefits coordinator apprised of their status and needs each semester.

To receive support from veteran programs, after registering for classes each semester, a student is required to report to the Veterans Benefits Coordinator to complete a certification request form. The university certifies attendance and credit load to the Veterans Administration based on the certification request.

Payments of veterans’ benefits depend on the number of credits carried. Graduate students should carry at least nine credits during the semester to receive full benefits under most programs. Payment will be awarded according to the schedule below. Contact the Veterans Benefits Coordinator for summer term rules.
