Veteran Certification Services

Welcome Veteran Affairs (VA) Beneficiary Students!

We support current and former service members and their dependents as they further their education at Marshall University. The Office of the Registrar certifies the enrollments of students utilizing their VA educational benefits to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. VA beneficiary students must be enrolled in an approved program of study and all courses must be degree applicable and meet VA requirements. Students are required to submit a VA Certification Request form to the Office of the Registrar for each semester they request enrollment certification to the VA for disbursement of education benefits.

VA Certification Request
In order to receive education benefits, your enrollment must be certified to the VA. Once your schedule is final, you may submit the VA Certification Request Form below.

VA Certification Request Form

**VA enrollment certification will not occur without a completed VA Certification Request form. After course registration, and at least four weeks prior to the tuition due date, please submit the VA Certification Request Form.**
