Veterans Benefits (VA)

The Office of Financial Assistance serves as the liaison between veteran students at Harris-Stowe State University and the Department of Veterans Affairs. We process VA forms required for educational benefits, advise student veterans on procedural requirements and certify the enrollment of HSSU student veterans to the VA.

Any questions or concerns regarding eligibility should be directed to the VA, whom is solely responsible for determining eligibility. They can be reached directly at 1-888-442-4551 or online at gibill.va.gov.


Veteran Administration: Required VA Forms

If you are a new or transferring student who is eligible to receive VA benefits and have already applied for these benefits through the VA's website at VA.gov, please submit the following documents to our office for enrollment certification:
  • Form DD214
  • Certificate of Eligibility
  • Accuplacer Scores (if placement test was taken upon enrollment at HSSU; can be obtained from the Admissions Office, HGA #009)


 
If you are a returning VA benefit recipient at HSSU, please submit the following documents:
(For Office Use Only) VA Enrollment: Registration Review


Once your paperwork has been submitted to HSSU's VA School Certifying Official, located in the Financial Aid Office (HGA #004), the courses in which you are seeking certification for will be evaluated by the Office of Academic Success (HGA #008) via the Registration Review form identified above. Enrollment certification with the VA generally takes place within 3 business days of completion of the VA Enrollment: Registration Review form by the Office of Academic Success, but can take up to 10 business days to complete.
