VEBO, located in Schmitz Hall room 520, houses everything related to education benefits. Students using GI Bill benefits in their first quarter will need to fill out a “Veterans Credit Evaluation” form and have it signed by the Graduate Program Advisor. VEBO will certify your GI Bill benefits each quarter through a quarterly “Enrollment Certification Request” form, which should be signed by the Graduate Program Advisor or your First Year Faculty Advisor.
For veteran students that do not have GI Bill benefits which cover tuition for the entire duration of the degree, UW offers a veteran tuition waiver. This waiver may only be used for one degree at UW, but will waive up to 50% of in-state tuition rates. In order to apply students must send in a “Tuition Waiver for Veterans Graduate/Professional Students” application, copy of their DD-214, a “Certificate of Washington Domicile” (if not already classified as a WA resident), and be enrolled in a minimum of 10 credits to receive the waiver.
To receive in-state tuition rates veteran students must be using the Post 9/11 or Montgomery GI Bill or are a spouse or child of an individual who separated from the uniformed services under these terms. To apply, submit a “Tuition Reduction for Veterans and Eligible Spouse/Child” form, “Certificate of Eligibility” verifying your GI Bill benefits, and copy of a DD-214 (“Member 4” of 90 days or more within the past three years) to the Office of the University Registrar located on the second floor of Schmitz Hall.
