The use of VA education benefits generates a continuous stream of communication from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. All correspondence is important and should be read promptly and carefully upon receipt. Any misunderstandings or discrepancies should be brought to the attention of the College's Veterans Affairs Office immediately for clarification or correction.
Generally, the correspondence you receive will relate to enrollment verification and/or changes in student status.
- Enrollment verification: Seminole State periodically reports information about the classes you are taking to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in the form of an enrollment certification. Once the VA receives your certification, it will send you a confirmation letter.
- Changes in student status: A Notice of Change in Student Status is sent to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to reflect amendments to a student's hours — as a result of dropping a class, being dropped from a class by an instructor, or the start of a new academic term — after the initial enrollment certification. The VA will send you a confirmation letter after it receives your status change.
We urge you to create and maintain a file for all VA-related letters and documents. We also recommend keeping a photocopy of each check you receive.
