Veterans Educational Benefits

Lake Superior State University’s VA Certifying Official acts as a liaison between the Department of Veteran Affairs and eligible students. Student eligibility for veterans educational benefits is determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. Students who believe they are eligible for veterans educational benefits are encouraged to contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs for educational assistance programs. Additional information is available at LSSU’s Veterans Benefits website.

A Veterans Educational Benefits recipient must be admitted into a degree program or as a guest student. The student is required to provide the University’s VA Certifying Official with a degree audit form from their department. All transfer credit is evaluated and recorded as “credit for previous training”. Classes may not be repeated if passing grades were received. Each semester the student must provide a completed certification form of scheduled classes within their declared major to the University’s VA Certifying Official. The student must also notify the University’s VA Certifying Official of any change to their scheduled classes, academic program, or withdrawal from the University. These activities along with attendance are monitored and reported to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Students who are receiving VA Educational Benefits are expected to pay tuition and fees by the payment deadline date established by the University each semester, with exception to the following:

  • Students receiving Post 9/11 Benefits and have a current semester course certification on file in the Registrar's Office will automatically receive a deferment on tuition and fee payment until payment arrives from the VA.

  • Students participating in the Vocational Rehabilitation Program, Chapter 31 will not receive late fees for any charges eligible for payment in accordance with VR&E.

Standards of Progress requirements for recipients of Veterans educational benefits follow the University’s “Academic Probation and Dismissal Policy” as stated. If a student fails to meet these standards, the University’s VA Certifying Official must notify the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the student’s benefits will be terminated for unsatisfactory progress.
