The University of West Georgia maintains two offices to serve military affiliated students. The Office of the Registrar coordinates Veteran Educational Benefits and Military Tuition Assistance benefit processing. The Veterans and Military Programs Office helps service members, veterans, and their affiliated family members maximize their educational experience through student engagement and a Veterans Resource Center.
The University of West Georgia allows students who are using Veteran Educational Benefits to enroll, and will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes or other services due to the delayed disbursement of funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Any covered individual is permitted to attend or participate in the course of education during the period beginning on the date of which the covered individual provides the UWG Office of the Registrar with a copy of their certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under chapter 31 or 33 (a “certificate of eligibility” can also include a “Statement of Benefits” obtained from the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) website - eBenefits, or a VAF 28-1905 form for chapter 31 authorization purposes) and ending on the earlier of the following dates: The date on which payment from VA is made to the institution OR 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certificate of eligibility.
Each person receiving educational benefits is responsible for ensuring that all information affecting his or her receipt of benefits is kept current, and each must confirm with the School Certifying Official in the Office of the Registrar prior to each term his or her intent to receive funds for the term. Covered individuals who are receiving less than 100% of tuition and fees covered by the Department of Veterans Affairs, must pay the remaining balance by the deadline as stated by the Office of Student Accounts and Billing Services.
