Enrollment for Veterans
- The veteran must first apply and be admitted into the University.
- The student must then obtain an Application for Program of Education Form (VA form 22-1990) from the Department of Veterans Affairs by visiting the VA Web site, or the VA representative in the registrar’s office.
- After completing the application, the veteran sends a copy of the application or hand delivers the form to the registrar’s office. Students must be registered for classes before enrollment certification can be sent to the Buffalo Regional Processing Center.
A student who received veteran benefits while attending the University during the preceding semester must notify the VA representative in the registrar's office EACH SEMESTER by completing the Declaration of Intent Form of their intent to use their benefits.
Failure to notify the certifying official of her/his intent for the semester may result in nonpayment or a change in the amount of monthly payments.
Please note: If any changes are made to the registration, program or objective the certifying official must be contacted immediately. A new Request of Change of Program (VA form 22-1995) must be completed by the VA representative and submitted to the VA.
Also note: Once the enrollment certification has been made to the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) in Buffalo, N.Y., processing takes anywhere from 6 to 10 weeks before payment authorization is made.
