VA Education Benefits require you to be certified by the school you are attending. You can request to be certified after you have applied for benefits through VA, are an admitted student to UVM and have enrolled in classes. UVM now allows you to request the School Ceritfying Official to certify your enrollment through the myUVM Portal Veteran Page. This allows you to request your certification quickly, easily, and paperlessly. Best of all it is available right now.
The certification process requries the student and School Certifying Official to communicate well and works smoothest if we get it right the first time around. Therefore, you must know what benefit you are eligible for, be informed about what it pays for and how, and be sure that your schedule is finalized before requesting to be certified in order to avoid creating debt with VA. Any schedule changes should be reported immediately via the same form in your myUVM Portal. If you would prefer to drop off the paper form to my office in Waterman 360 you can print it here.
Transparency of Process
Transparency of the certification process allows students to know VA requirements and understand what UVM will certify. That allows students to make informed decisions about which courses to enroll in and how an add / drop or withdraw will affect their certification. Learn about what School Certifying Officials are required to report:
If you have questions about the process at any point, call, email, or drop by office hours to discuss what is available for you. You can speak with someone about applying, transfering credit, certification of your enrollment, making sure your payments are on the way, academic support or access to other VA Benefits.
