NOTICE: RECENT Department of Defense Changes to the Tuition Assistance Program

Effective Winter 2015 term, students using federal Tuition Assistance (TA) can no longer have the same courses certified to the Department of Veterans Affairs under Chapters 1606 or 1607. Any remaining classes not covered by TA can be certified to VA.

This change does not apply if you are using state TA.

If you have questions regarding VA certification, please contact WKU VA at va.questions@wku.edu or 270-745-3732.
