The Office of Veterans Services at Southeastern Louisiana University and VBA closely monitor each student veteran's enrollment status and academic program. The student's educational benefit is based upon the number of credit hours applicable to his/her academic degree program.


Student Veteran Responsibilities

  • Veterans are required to contact the VA School Certifying Official in the Veterans Services Office each semester to complete the Southeastern Course Certification form to begin receiving educational benefits.

  • Verify on-line monthly through WAVE (www.gibill.va.gov/wave) or call 1-877-823-2378 (required for CHs 30, 1606, and 1607) 

  • Register only for courses that are required for completion of your selected degree.

  • Do not register in courses for which you have previously received a passing grade/credit (even if taken at another institution)

Notify the VA School Certifying Official if you:
  • Change major programs

  • Change course load

  • Withdraw from classes

  • Change your address. (You must inform the Department of Veterans Affairs.)

  • Have depleted your VA educational benefits.


As a recipient of VBA Educational Benefits:
  • You are eligible for payment of remedial courses if placement test scores justify the need.

  • Any overpayments incurred are your responsibility and not the responsibility of the Southeastern Louisiana University Office of Veterans Services.
