Veteran Deferment Policy

Submit this form ONLY if you have already submitted a Certification Request Form and are requesting to have your tuition deferred for the semester/term.

Your Certification Request Form MUST be submitted no later than the first day of the semester in order for your deferment to be processed. If it has been submitted after that date, your deferment will not be processed. 

If you have not submitted a Certification Request Form to the Office of Veterans Affairs,
the deferment request will not be processed.

When a student requests a deferment, a hold will be placed on the student's file that will not allow registration for any future semesters/terms, and the student will not be allowed to receive grades or transcripts.  Once the student's bill is paid in full by the last day of the semester, then the hold can be lifted.

Choose one of the following:

I HAVE submitted a Certification Request Form to the VA Office at WKU for the semester that I am requesting a deferment.

Submit this form ONLY if you have already submitted a Certification Request Form and are requesting to have your tuition deferred for the current semester.

Submission of this form verifies:

  • I am requesting the deferment for the stated semester/term and I hereby acknowledge that I am personally responsible for payment of any outstanding balance (not covered by the Department of Veterans Affairs).
  • The portion not covered by the Department of Veterans Affairs must be paid by the end of the term.
  • I understand that my grades and transcripts will be withheld, and that registration for any future semesters/terms will NOT be allowed until the remaining portion not covered by the Department of Veterans Affairs is PAID in FULL.
  • I further understand that if I drop classes and/or withdraw from the University, I will be subject to the normal refund policies as published by the University, and that any amount owed according to those policies must be paid by me.
  • I understand that if my balance remains unpaid for 90 days following the end of the semester/term for which it is owed, my account will be referred to a collection agency, and any charges associated with this referral and/or processing must be paid by me.

**** DO NOT submit this form unless you understand and agree to the information listed above. ****
