How do I certify my enrollment?

Please note: Any changes made to your enrollment must be reported to the school's certifying official (SCO) by email, vabenefits@seminolestate.edu, immediately to avoid delay in VA payments or possible overpayments.

To ensure uninterrupted receipt of your VA benefits, a Certification Request Form (CRF) must be submitted to the Office of Veteran Student Services for each semester you are enrolled. To request an enrollment certification, please follow the guidelines established below:

  • If this is your first time using VA benefits at Seminole State College, please provide a copy of your certificate of eligibility, DD Form 214 (Veterans), or any additional Department of Defense or VA documents.
  • Submit only one CRF per term, and submit it only after you have completed the registration process and finalized your class schedule. 
    • Changes made after your certification has been processed will be automatically reported to the VA after the add/drop period. 
  • The tuition payment request will not be processed until after the add/drop period.

A VA deferment may be accepted once your request has been received and processed. Please allow 24-48 hours from the time your request is submitted before logging into the student center to accept the deferment. 

Please note that students awarded financial aid will defer payments under financial aid. In this case, a VA deferment link will not be available.

You must Log In to fill out this form.
