How to get VA benefits


Enrollment Certification Request

Veterans and dependents receiving VA Educational Assistance must complete a WSU Enrollment Certification Request prior to each semester or term that they wish to use their VA benefit. This form requires the student's academic advisor's approval, so plan ahead! Failure to submit this form will delay receipt of your monthly GI Bill payments.


VMASS Hoteling - ACCESS Center

Schedule a meeting with Michael (Veteran / Access Advisor) in person to discuss the application and documentation process. Please include your full name and your WSU email address when scheduling your appointment.

This is not an intake, this is to help you get started, fill out the application, and answer any questions you might have. Michael will be in the VMAS Center on most Mondays, from 10 - 12 pm. These appointments are scheduled for 20 minutes and are for general how-to-get-started inquiries.
