Eligible Service Members using Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA) must receive approval from their Education Service Officer (ESO) or counselor within their perspective Military Service prior to enrolling in the institution.
The Veterans Assistance (VA) liaison is located in the Office of Student Records. Assistance is given to veterans and dependents of eligible veterans to enable them to derive the maximum benefit from their veteran educational entitlements.
The VA representative and his/her contact assist students with questions and/or concerns related to the available benefits and their eligibility. The representative acts as the liaison between the veteran and the VA Regional Processing Office located in Atlanta, GA.
Once the student has completed all paper work for the initial term of enrollment, she/he must make contact each semester with the Office of the Registrar to ensure the certification process is being completed for the current term. The Office of Student Records will not assume that the student wishes to receive benefits, regardless of the Chapter or level of entitlement.
