Receiving Your Benefits

Prior to the beginning of each semester you will need to request that the Veterans Services Office, on the Main or Downtown campus, certifies your enrollment to the Veterans Administration. You will need to meet with an academic advisor in the college of your major prior to your initial enrollment at UTSA to obtain a copy of a degree plan that outlines the required courses for your major and degree.

Your degree plan will be used by the certification officers to insure that your course enrollments are consistent with the requirements for your degree. If you change your major or college, you will have to obtain a new degree plan and file it with the Veterans Services Office. It is also your responsibility to keep the veterans services officers informed of any changes to your enrollment that take place once the semester begins.

Student Veteran enrollments are monitored throughout the semester to insure that correct funding is received based on your current enrollment. We recommend that you file a request for certification as soon as you have registered for courses and to keep the certification office informed of any changes to your academic degree plan.
