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.


Request for Benefits Form

Once your schedule is final, you may complete the FSU Request for Benefits form. Check to be sure all areas have been addressed correctly before submitting. Once you have submitted the form, you will receive a confirmation email to your FSU email account stating the request form has been received by the FSU Student Veterans Center. Please keep this email for your records. Any additional documents must be sent to the FSU Student Veterans Center in order to complete the process. You must complete a new FSU Request for Benefits form, after registering for classes, for each semester you plan to use VA Educational Benefits.
