*** While you are registering for classes, don't forget that the VA considers all hybrid courses here at CU as distance courses, and they have to be certified as such***

*** It is much cleaner for your housing payments and tuition and mandatory fee payments if your schedule does NOT adjust after the FIRST DAY OF THE TERM. After this day the VA has to be notified of each change in your schedule and they will start pro-rating everything***

*** There is a policy change regarding the use of Tuition Assistance (TA). You CANNOT combine the use of Chapter 1606 or Chapter 1607 with TA anymore. You will need to use the benefit that is most beneficial to you. If you try to use both, when we cross check our records with the person that processes TA, we will terminate the VA certification request which will cause you to receive debt letters from the VA.***

The Veterans Services Office at the University of Colorado Boulder, understands that veterans and military members living, working, and receiving their education at CU-Boulder are a valued and vital component of our campus community. We recognize and honor their sacrifices and value their life experiences as they broaden the diversity of our staff, faculty and student body.

We also recognize their special circumstances and the need for our campus to assist them in making the successful transition into our campus environment. As such, our office serves you in two capacities.

Veteran Services supplements the recruitment and retention of veterans to the Boulder campus. We provide a key point of contact for counseling and program information for the veteran/military community at CU-Boulder, while developing and maintaining productive relations with off-campus organizations and programs serving veterans.

Veterans Educational Benefits is part of the Office of Veterans Services and helps eligible students apply to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs for their VA educational benefits. We also process VA enrollment certifications for students each term.
