Prospective students who are eligible for veterans’ benefits should contact the Veterans Coordinator in the registrar’s office at the University at the time application for admission is made. Such students should also report to the Veterans Coordinator no later than the first week of each semester’s classes. The Veterans Coordinator will submit the necessary application forms to the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) regional office for processing.
Recipients desiring advanced payment of the initial benefit check should know that the DVA requires application at least 30 days prior to the start of the term.
Veterans and others eligible for educational benefits from the DVA are subject to the standard of satisfactory progress as required by DVA rules and regulations.
Benefit recipients are required to notify the Veterans Coordinator of any adds, drops, withdrawals, or changes of program of study.
Wounded warriors (veterans with disabilities) should contact the Office for Students with Disabilities for information about the accommodation request process. Please contact this office as soon as possible in order to allow sufficient time to process your request.
The educational records of the students receiving benefits as well as other students not on benefits (for comparison), may be provided to authorized state and federal personnel without prior consent of the student under 45 CFR. Part 99.3 and Part 99.35 (Protection and the Right of Privacy of Parents and Students).
Additional information regarding Department of Veterans Affairs policies and programs may be obtained from the Veterans Coordinator, located in the Office of the Registrar in Waldschmidt Hall, Suite 100. Telephone: (503) 943-7321. For your convenience, additional veterans' information, including downloadable forms and applications are available on the DVA website.
