Responsibilities of Veterans/Dependents Receiving VA Education Benefits
Utilization of VA Educational Benefits will
generate a continuing stream of school and VA correspondence either by conventional
mail or email. All correspondence is important and should be read carefully
upon receipt. Any misunderstandings or discrepancies should be brought to the
attention of the UNF VA Certifying Official immediately for clarification or
correction when appropriate. We urge you to create and maintain a file for all
VA and school correspondence. It is also recommended you keep a photocopy of
each check received.
The documents you will receive include a
Certificate of Eligibility, an award letter and changes in student status from
the VA Certifying Official.
Enrollment certifications contain information
about the classes you are taking. They are sent to the VA periodically. After
processed, the VA Regional Processing Office will send you a letter verifying
your enrollment. Look over this letter carefully. Verify personal data such as
address, date of birth, social security number and name. Pay particular
attention to the dates and hours reported. If any information is incorrect,
please notify the UNF VA Certifying Official immediately.
Notices of Change in Student Status are usually
sent to the Department of Veterans Affairs after an initial enrollment
certification has been sent. These forms reflect a change in hours either as a
result of dropping a class, being dropped from a class by the instructor,
withdrawing from courses, or the beginning of a new semester. You should carefully review
this form to verify name, social security number, and hours reported. If the
information appears incorrect, please contact the VA Certifying Official so the
information can be explained or corrected.
