Confirmation of Veteran Status

We have received your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) from the federal processor. However, your FAFSA is invalid and requires your immediate attention. You indicated on your FAFSA that you are a veteran, yet the federal processor could not confirm your veteran status with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.

Therefore, you must provide a copy of your DD 214 (Member-4) form to our Veteran’s Affairs Coordinator (to the Center for Student Success & First Year Experience Office, 361B Martindale Hall, Student Services Center) in order to confirm your veteran (or active duty) status. If you do not have a DD 214, but attended at least one full day of a U.S. Military Academy (Army, Navy, or Air Force Academies), please provide proof of that attendance.

If you have questions, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 1-800-891-4596.
