Veterans Affairs

Welcome to Veterans Affairs at WKU!

The Office of Veterans Affairs at Western Kentucky University (WKU) is here to assist you in pursuing your educational goals and assist you in applying for and receiving your VA educational benefits.

The Office of Veterans Affairs at WKU is located in the Financial Aid Office in Potter Hall on the third floor. Our office does not work for the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA). The office serves as a liaison between WKU student veterans and dependents and the DVA.

We assist students with the processing of VA forms for DVA educational benefits, advise students about certain procedural requirements, and certify enrollment of veterans and dependents to the DVA.

Student entitlement is based on VA regulations. Monthly payment is determined by the number of credit hours for which that student is enrolled. The VA Office at WKU also closely monitors each veteran's enrollment status and academic program according to DVA guidelines.

As a veteran, you may be entitled to education benefits. Eligibility is determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
