Veterans Enrollment Certification

For every semester you intend to use benefits, you must submit a Request for Certification for VA Benefits to your respective institution’s VA office. The designated certifying official will submit your enrollment confirmation directly to VA. Please note the following:

  • This form can only be submitted after you have registered for classes.
  • If this is your first semester at USG or you have changed your major, you must submit a 22-1995/22-5495 to the VA.  Mail this form to the Buffalo Regional Office.
  • The VA will release benefits within 4-6 weeks after the University’s Veterans Certification Office receives your Request for Certification for VA Benefits.

Below you will find the links to your respective institution veterans’ office and information regarding the certification process.
