Veterans Benefits

Programs are approved for those who wish to attend and receive benefits under the Veterans Readjustment Benefits Act of 1966, Post-Vietnam Era Veterans Educational Assistance Program, the Veteran's Educational Act of 1984, Chapter 1606 (formerly 106), Reservists' Education Bill, Chapter 30, Chapter 33, Veterans Administration (VA) Education Bill of 1986, and dependents qualified for VA Educational Benefits.

Students attending with the intention of utilizing military-affiliated education benefits should inquire with the Military & Veteran Resource Center (MVRC) located in Eckhardt Hall before registration to obtain needed information relative to their enrollment and certification. New students must furnish the MVRC with a copy of their DD214 (Member 4) or a certified DD214 from the county court clerk of their respective county. The student must also submit certified copies of marriage certificates, divorce certificates, and dependents' birth certificates, if applicable.

Students must verify their degree path with their academic advisor/graduate mentor before certification for that semester. Degree plans are available through the course catalog and can be found on DegreeWorks for degree auditing. Certifications will not include courses taken that do not appear on the student's approved degree plan, nor will they pay for courses previously taken and completed. All transcripts from previous schools attended must be evaluated and appropriate credit applied to the approved degree plan including military education transcripts. A delay in this will cause a delay in future certifications for educational benefits.

Transfer students should have copies of all previous college transcripts for initial counseling sessions. It is the student's responsibility to inform MVRC of any changes in enrollment status. The monthly rates of payment to veterans are provided for by Public Law 94-302.

Military-affiliated students should have military credit evaluated at the close of the first semester or upon completing 12 semester hours and submit this to the MVRC with a copy of their updated degree plan. Any transfer credit from prior education must be evaluated before the close of the first semester.

Texas A&M-Kingsville MVRC certifies every semester. To be certified for continuous enrollment, you must notify the MVRC on campus, before these periods, of your registration intentions. To be certified, you must submit all complete documentation to the MVRC on campus. For more information, please contact the MVRC at 361-593-4421 or visit our office in person.
