The function of Enrollment Services' Veterans Affairs is to assist student service members, veterans, and dependents in receiving entitled educational benefits and achieving educational goals. Students must be accepted into an approved program, complete the required application, and provide the appropriate documentation.
The Veterans Affairs coordinator assists students with enrollment certifications for veterans educational benefits, tuition exemptions, military scholarships entitled by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Although our office works to ensure that DVA, DD and THECB regulations are satisfied, we have no authority to make judgments regarding benefit status, determine the eligibility of individuals for veterans educational benefits, or approve payment of benefits.
Veterans Information for Veterans and Students: Applications and/or questions should be directed to Tonia Griffin.
Hazelwood Exemption for Veterans and Students: Applications and/or questions should be directed to James Bowen.
We are proudly located in the historic Ashbel Smith Building, affectionately known as 'Old Red'.
