Veteran certification procedures

New veteran students

  • Complete VA Form 22-1990. This should be done at the earliest possible time after you have been admitted to the University. 
  • Provide a certified copy of your separation papers, DD214 (active duty) or an original "Notice of Basic Eligibility" from your reserve unit, (Reservists). 
  • Contact the Veterans Certification Officer at (269) 387-4115 for assistance in obtaining and completing the Veterans Certification Information form.

Transfer veteran students

  • Complete VA Form 22-1995. This should be done at the earliest possible time after you have been admitted to the University. 
  • Contact the Veterans Certification Officer at (269) 387-4115 for assistance in obtaining and completing the Veteran's Certification Information form.

To better comply with VA regulations, you should know that:

  • A Veteran's Certification Information form must be completed each year.
  • Address changes are done by completing a Change of Address Form and filing it with the Veteran's Certification Officer. 
  • Any dropping, adding, or withdrawing of courses on your registration must be reported immediately to the Veterans Certification Officer in the Office of the Registrar. This could cause an overpayment which would affect your future Educational Benefits. 
  • Grades of "X" or "E" must be reported to the Office of the Registrar immediately with the last date attended. This must be done within fifteen (15) working days from the last date of attendance or will result in an adjustment of reported hours back to the first day of the semester. 
  • Advance pay requests must be made at least 35 days prior to the first day of the semester. 

Any questions may be directed to the Veterans Certification Officer in the Office of the Registrar, 3210 Seibert Administration Building. Contact by phone by calling (269) 387-4115 or send an email to: <brenda.hamlyn@wmich.edu>
