Frequently Accessed Information for Veterans


Continuing Students

All students who are currently enrolled must complete a "semester sign in sheet" in the Veterans Affairs office (B-204) to certify classes for the upcoming session every semester. If you have previously used your GI Bill at previous institutions or if you are changing your program/major, you must send for official transcripts and submit the following form (22-1995) to the Veterans Affairs office: http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/vba-22-1995-are.pdf

(Students must be enrolled and all tuition and fees must be paid for before paperwork may be submitted)

Avoiding Debt with the Department of Veterans Affairs

In order to prevent the possibility of receiving an erroneous DVA educational benefits check, PROMPTLY report any changes made to your enrollment to the Veterans Affairs office at your primary campus. Any withdrawal or failure to attend class may result in an adjustment to the award, which may result in a debt to the U.S. government, which includes interest.

Liability

The veteran assumes full liability for any overpayment of veteran's benefits. All persons receiving Veterans benefits must report to the Office of Veterans Affairs after registering for classes EACH SEMESTER.

Withdrawal/Change of Classes

All persons using VA educational benefits MUST report any changes to the VA office on campus immediately after dropping/withdrawing from classes on REG-E. Failure to comply with this regulation may be grounds for decertification.
