If you intend you use VA Education Benefits at Idaho State University for the Spring 2013 semester, please submit your VA Registration Form as soon as you have finalized your schedule. This form needs to be submitted EVERY semester! If you don't submit this form, your VA Education Benefits will not be processed and no payments will be issued. As VA Education Benefit payments may take as long as 4-6 weeks for the VA to approve after being processed by the University, registering early and submitting the VA Registration Form are the best ways to ensure payments begin on time!
If you need assistance with advising, registration or financial services, we will be holding a Veteran & Service Members Registration Event on Tuesday, November 20th, in the Salmon River Suites, 3rd floor of the Student Union Building from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm (see the attached flyer). Everyone is invited to attend! There will be representatives on hand to assist you with: Advising, Registration, VA Benefits, Tuition Assistance, Financial Aid, University Housing, Residency and more!
