Certify Your Enrollment

Whether you are an incoming student, current student or transfer student, you must take steps when you first start at UB to ensure that you receive your VA educational benefits.

About Certification

UB students looking to use VA education benefits need to complete certain steps in order to have their benefits processed with the VA. Once a student completes these steps, a UB Veterans Education Benefits School Certifying Official (SCO) evaluates their eligibility and processes their education benefits with the VA; what is referred to as, “certification”. The VA then reviews the certification and makes the final determination regarding eligibility and benefits. 

The Veteran Services Office, an on-campus resource for veteran students and dependents, provides assistance to students with the veterans’ education benefits process and works in conjunction with the SCO’s of the Financial Aid Office.
