Veterans’ Benefit

Veterans’ Benefit

The Office of Veteran Affairs assists veterans, dependents, reservists, and national guardsmen who are eligible for educational benefits through the Veterans Administration.  Students expecting to receive veterans benefits must apply for benefits and should contact the Office of Veteran Affairs at least six weeks before the beginning of each semester.

To qualify for payments, all veterans must be released under honorable conditions.  To receive full benefits, a veteran must be pursuing an approved course of study leading to a degree or other professional objective.  To be considered full time, undergraduate students must carry 12 credits or the equivalent, and graduate students must carry 9 credits or the equivalent.

An advisory service is available to veterans and additional information, advice on benefits, and application forms may be obtained by writing to the veterans’ advisor in the Office of the Dean of Students, P.O. Box 442431, Moscow, ID  83844-2431, calling (208) 885-7979, or visiting the website at www.uidaho.edu/dos.
