Student Responsibilities

  • My VA benefits will be certified each fall and spring semester. Each summer semester or intercession will require written student request.

  • It is my responsibility to know when my benefits are expiring and to notify my Certifying Official of the expiration date.

  • It is my responsibility to promptly notify a certifying official of any registration changes and understand those changes may create a debt with the VA.

  • Only courses that fulfill degree requirements can be certified for VA purposes. Courses that fulfill a minor are not able to be certified unless your major requires a minor.

  • If my benefits are extended, I will send a copy of the VA documentation confirming this to a certifying official. (only applies to Chapter 33 and 33T, Post 9/11).

  • I am responsible for paying all charges other than tuition & fees. Other charges could include housing, meals, etc. (only applies to Chapter 33 and 33T, Post 9/11).
