Veterans Certification Current Students

All students using VA Educational Benefits must certify their courses every term with the Veterans Certification Office. Current students should fill out the Electronic Certification Form through their myPSU account.

The Veterans Certification Office will check the degree applicability of your registration and certify all eligible courses for payment by the Federal VA. Please note that the Federal VA will not pay for any courses that are not directly applicable to your declared program objective.
