For Students Eligible for Benefits from the United State Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)

The role of the SSU Veterans Affairs office is to . . .
. . . certify with the VA enrollment each semester/term;
. . . verify that the student has established a degree plan;
. . . verify successful completion of classes.

The SSU Veterans Affairs office does not calculate or determine benefits on behalf of the VA and is not a part of the VA application-for-benefits process.

In order to activate the SSU Veterans Affairs file, the student is required to submit these documents to the Director of Veterans Affairs:

1.) From the VA: the certificate of eligibility. To obtain the certificate, the student applies for benefits direct to the VA: explore.va.gov

2.) From SSU: these fully completed forms which can be found here:

  • Checklist
  • Academic Plan
  • Semester Class Enrollment Form

For continuing students, the Certification Form must be submitted to the SSU Director of Veterans Affairs each semester. The Semester Class Enrollment Form should be submitted once the student has registered for the following semester classes.
