Veterans Affairs

"To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan" (Abraham Lincoln)

In appreciation for your service, the federal government offers educational benefits to veterans and certain family members.  LSUHSC Office of the Registrar serves as the certifying official who act as a liaison between the Department of Veterans Affairs and the veteran student to offer various entitlement programs to students who have served in the military on active duty, are members of the selected Reserves/National Guard, or are dependents of a veteran who died while in the military or who has a service-related disability. This involves assisting with a variety of processing and information needs such as documentation requirements, correspondence, and the certification of benefits. This website is designed to help those individuals who are interested in attending LSUHSC to use their educational benefits. If you have questions that are not answered here, please contact the GI Bill® staff directly at 1-888-442-4551.

Students need to officially request benefits by completing the  LSUHSC Online Veterans Certification Request form each semester they wish to claim benefits. By completing the VA Certification Request each semester, students will provide our office with current information regarding addresses, degree objections, etc. The form may be returned to LSUHSC Office of the Registrar in person or by e-mail.
