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 at:
