Fill out and submit a FAFSA (Federal Application for Student Aid)
If your student is not a Florida resident, contact the FSU Student Veterans Center to see whether they qualify for an out-of-state tuition waiver.
Look for scholarships for veteran dependents that your student might qualify for.
Make sure your student has health insurance (health insurance purchased through FSU may be eligible for VA reimbursement).
Note that you can only access your student’s information (or get your questions answered about it) if your student has authorized that access sc.my.fsu.edu/delegates/faq
Veteran-dependents who receive VA educational benefits get priority course registration, which means they can register for classes ahead of other students. Urge your student to register as soon as the priority registration window opens up.
After your dependent has registered for classes, complete the Request for Benefits form (a new RFB form must be submitted each semester).
Students who participate in activities and organizations outside the classroom show higher levels of academic achievement. Encourage your dependent you explore FSU’s 600+ registered student organizations (RSOs).
Be aware that FSU VeteranLiaisons are in administrative and academic units throughout campus to assist student veterans and veteran-dependents.
