IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS USING
POST 9/11 GI BILL® BENEFITS

Starting Spring semester 2022, students using Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits will be required to verify their enrollment at the end of each month. Failure to verify for two consecutive months will interrupt the Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) and/or kicker payments.

A simple and convenient verification option is to sign up for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) text message verification. Students with a US mobile phone number on file with the VA will receive an opt-in text as their next enrollment period approaches. Students who do not have a US mobile phone number on file with VA will not be able to use text verification and instead be automatically enrolled into email verification system.

Another option for students who do not opt-in for text is to call the VA Education Call Center at 888-442-4551 to verify their enrollment status.


Out-of-State Tuition Waiver

IMPORTANT: With the expectation that classes designed for in-person delivery will resume their face-to-face format for Fall 2021, the Out-of-State Tuition Waiver will return to its standard format after the Summer semester. The Out-of-State Tuition Waiver can only be extended to honorably discharged veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, Reserve and National Guard, and eligible veteran-dependents using VA educational benefits who physically reside in Florida. Active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces stationed outside of Florida also qualify for the OOS Tuition Waiver. Please note that additional documentation is often required in order to process these waivers. Please contact the FSU Student Veterans Center with any questions.
