Serving veterans and their families

The Veteran Benefits Certification Office assists with certification of your Federal VA benefits and the State of Texas Hazlewood Act.

ONLINE CERTIFICATION IS REQUIRED EACH SEMESTER for all federal benefit users

UTA submits your enrollment (credit hours only) to the Federal VA after we have verified you have submitted the UTA Certify Online and supporting documents. Certifications are processed in the order received. Ch.33 Post 9/11 tuition & fee reimbursements are Certified to the VA after the Census Date of the term. The Federal VA may take up to 6 weeks to process an enrollment or tuition and fee request during peak periods; payments may take up to 3 weeks to post to your UT Arlington account.

For CH. 33 Post 9/11 Users ONLY:

Good News! If you are using Ch. 33 Post 9/11 benefits and meet the certification deadline for a term, your Do Not Drop will be visible in your Student Services Center. Go to the home page and look at the top right under HOLDS. Do Not Drops will be placed on your account within 7 days of an accurately submitted online certification. (Fall Do Not Drops will not be added until July)
