Veteran Certification

The Office of the University Registrar is responsible for certifying to the Department of Veterans Affairs the enrollment of students on the Danforth Campus of Washington University in St. Louis who are using Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits. Certification for students of the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis is handled by the Registrar’s Office at the School of Medicine.

Documentation Required

Documentation of eligibility is required for enrollment certification. A veteran must provide a copy of a Certificate of Eligibility and DD214. A dependent must provide a copy of a Certificate of Eligibility.

Eligibility for Certification

Students must be enrolled in a degree or certificate program or, if pending admission, must be enrolled in courses applicable to the program to which they are applying. Only courses required for the enrolled degree/certificate will be certified. Audited courses will not be certified.

Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress to continue to use their benefits.

The VA determines eligibility, and applications for VA benefits are submitted through the Veterans Online Application (VONAPP).
