Requirements

All veteran students choosing to use their VA Educational Benefits must contact the Veteran Student Services Office, 2107 C. B. Hedgcock, to complete the application process to receive their educational benefits. All students choosing to receive their VA Educational Benefits must complete a NMU Enrollment Verification Form at the beginning of  each semester, even if certified for more than one semester by the school’s VA Certifying Official. Failure to provide complete information may result in a delay of certification to the VA Regional Office. Completion of the NMU Enrollment Verification Form is not a guarantee that you will receive payment from the VA.

A printed copy of your Degree Evaluation must accompany the NMU Enrollment Verification Form.  To print a copy of your Degree Evaluation log on to your MyNMU account and:

1.  Under the Student Service tab, click Degree Evaluation-CAPP.
2.  Select year and semester, click submit.
3.  At the bottom of the page, click on View Previous or Run New Evaluation.
4.  At the bottom of the screen, click on Generate New Evaluation.
5.  Select Generate New Request, print and attach your Degree Evaluation to your NMU Enrollment Verification Form.


VA benefits are payable for approved courses and programs only. Restrictions apply to some courses and/or programs under some or all VA education programs. Veteran students will be certified to the VA in accordance with the current VA regulations. We are required to report complete details of your enrollment, and any subsequent changes, to the VA.

Veteran students must promptly notify the NMU's Veteran Student Services Office, 2107 C. B. Hedgcock Service Center, of any change in their enrollment, including adjustments to their course schedule or withdrawal from the university. A change in your registration and/or attendance may result in payment changes.  Veteran students who fail to successfully complete a course are required to notify the Veteran Student Services Office of the last date of their attendance. Failure to do so will result in our reporting that you did not attend the course. The VA Regional Office will adjust benefits based on the enrollment change date.

We cannot determine eligibility or payment amount of VA benefits. Veteran students having questions concerning the type or amount of their VA benefits should contact the Veterans Affairs Regional Office directly.
