VA Benefits System Changeover January 13, 2023

It is extremely important that you submit your Request for Benefits Form for Spring 2023 as soon as possible, otherwise your funding will be delayed.

Why: The current system for processing Veterans Affairs (VA) educational benefits is sunsetting on January 13; the replacement program will not be operational until late January.

Your course schedule must be set before submitting your RFB.

Following RFB submission, the FSU benefits team then verifies your schedule against degree requirements before certifying course enrollment to the VA; this is not an automatic process and can take up to 30 days to process per student.

Questions or concerns, please contact the Student Veterans Center at or 850-644-9562.

Requests for Benefits Form 

Once your schedule is final, you may complete the FSU Request for Benefits form. You must complete a new form, after registering for classes, for each semester you plan to use VA Educational Benefits.


Out-of-State Tuition Waiver

State and federal law extends out-of state tuition waivers to students who are honorably discharged veterans or eligible veteran dependents using VA Educational Benefits


Self-Identified Veterans Form

Current and former members of the military at Florida State have many opportunities available to them. As such, we welcome you to identify yourself with the Student Veterans Center so we can extend these opportunities to you as they become available.
