The Veterans Services staff is honored to assist former and current military and entitled family members in using their educational benefits. We help students through the process of eligibility, admissions, registration, and financial aid. We also provide information and referral to other military resources.
NEWS & EVENTS
Those who can no longer receive both VA Monies and Tuition Assistance:
The department of defense (DOD) will no longer authorize Tuition Assistance for classes for which the member is also receiving benefits under:
- The Montgomery GI bill selected reserve program (chapter 1606 of title 10)
- The Reserve Educational Assistance Program (chapter 1607 of title 10)
Those who can continue to receive both VA Monies and Tuition Assistance:
Or any other GI bill program other than
- The Montgomery GI bill-active duty program (chapter 30 of title 38)
- The Post 9/11 Bill program (chapter 33 of title 38)
This applies to any individuals who have or will enroll for spring semester. If you have already enrolled for Spring 2015 and have been processed for Tuition Assistance and 1606 or 1607, you must contact the WSU Veterans Services office at: 801-920-6382 and come into our office IMMEDIATELY. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN A HUGE OVERPAYMENT AND DEBT TO YOU, THE STUDENT
You can now register for Spring 2015 classes. If you are unable to do so, it is because you have not been coded as a veteran/military. Please contact our office at 801-626-6039.

- 36 months of full benefits, equal to 100% level of the Post-0/11 GI Bill which includes tuition and fee payment, a monthly stipend for books and supplies.

- A spouse has 15 years from the date of the Service Member's death to utilize benefits. If a spouse remarries, benefits end the date of the marriage.
Credit For Military Service and Training
Any member of the military wishing to receive credit for military service or training must contact the Admissions office. Credits for training will be reviewed and the Admissions office. If you have any questions regarding this process that seem unclear, please contact the Weber State Veteran Services office at 801-626-6039 or 6042.
If you are a veteran or military member, you can register each semester with senior status. Check with WSU veteran services to make sure you are coded as such. Also, prior to the beginning of each semester, you must provide our office with a copy of your Cat Tracks so we will know how many hours to certify you for. Each time VA sends you a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility listing the amount of months/days remaining entitlement you have. These steps will help speed up the process for you to receive your entitlements.
During your successful pursuit of education here at Weber State, MAKE NO CHANGES to your schedule unless you have contacted our office. Changes in your schedule will result in a debt to you either from the University or the Department of Veteran Affairs regional office.
Have you exhasted your Post 9-11 benefits?
If you are a senior and have exhausted your chapter 33 benefits, we can help with your tuition and fees. Contact Veteran Services at 801-626-6039
