Things to Remember:

  • Remember, your classes MUST follow your degree plan in order to be approved and certified by the VA.
  • Don't forget to fill out a Tuition Deferment form every semester to keep your schedule safe from purging.  This form permits late payment in case the VA is late on payments, and is the student's responsibility to request.  Print, sign, and deliver to our office in Dossett 101-A along with your class schedule. Alternatively, please e-mail the form to Veterans Affairs staff.
  • If you change, add, or drop a class, bring us a copy of your new Concise Student Schedule and a new, signed Advisor Worksheet. Changes to your class schedule may affect benefits.


We post important student information and community news on Facebook, too!
