If you are using VA educational benefits, please follow the steps below:
Turn in all required documents to the VMRC
Students who receive VA benefits, tuition assistance, or who are eligible for Washington State Tuition Waivers for Veterans, Spouses/Dependents, are encouraged to contact us to verify that all required documentation has been received.
Meet with an advisor to register for classes
To request certification for your VA education benefits, you will need to follow the online certification link provided at the bottom of this page. This applies to all benefit chapters. We will not accept requests via email. Failure to submit Quarterly Certification Requests will delay disbursement of monthly housing allowance and/or book stipends.
All students utilizing VA Education Benefits must complete a Quarterly Certification Request after registering for classes. This applies to benefit users enrolling in classes at Tacoma campus classes (If you are attending courses at a UW sister campus, you will need a parent letter signed by a UW Tacoma School Certifying Official (SCO) to authorize attendance at the sister campus). Once our SCOs have verified your program and course, you will receive a confirmation email from VAOnce.
Log in using your UW NetID, fill out the required fields on the Quarterly Certification Request webform, and submit your schedule. This applies to all benefit chapters. Note: If you have already submitted a Certification Request and need to inform us of a schedule change, please edit the already submitted Certification Request rather than creating a new one.
