Certification is the process in which our office electronically submits your enrollment to the VA for processing and payment of your education benfits. Enrollment is reported to VA (certified) by our office based on eligible courses you are scheduled for. Ineligible courses include:
- Courses not required for your degree,
- Courses not approved by your advisor, and
- Courses that you have already received credit for.
You can request to be certified once you have registered for classes. You will need to submit the following paperwork to our office:
Degree Plan (Curriculum) for your major
- Lists all courses required for your degree.
- Obtain a copy from your advisor or your department's administrative office.

*These forms must be submitted each semester you intend to use your benefits. Renewal is not automatic. Suggested deadline for timely payment of benefits is 6-8 weeks before the start of each semester.
