Veterans Affairs

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 Veterans Commission. Although our office works to ensure that DVA, DD and TVC 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.

All veterans need to speak with their Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their Military Service prior to enrolling in University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.

Please send all communications to VA Benefits in the Veterans Affairs Office.
