Veterans and certain eligible dependents may be entitled to educational benefits under various programs administered by the Veterans Administration. Veterans and eligible dependents may obtain these benefits while pursuing a course of study at UW-Eau Claire. Students enrolled under these programs must carry 12 hours of credit during each standard semester of the academic year to be eligible for full-time allotments. Summer session allotments are determined by class dates or length of class and number of credits.
All veterans must complete the Veteran Information Sheet before enrollment will be certified to the Veterans Administration. Click HERE to request certification of federal VA benefits
The following Federal educational benefit programs are administered through the Veterans Services Office:

There are three State programs administered through the Veterans Services Office:

We highly encourage all students to apply for the Wisconsin GI Bill benefit, even if you plan to use the tuition reimbursement grant or if you are eligible for the post 9.11 GI Bill at the 100% rate.
Both the Vet Ed and the National Guard Grant have specific deadlines. Contact our office for further details.
