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 (Office location: George Street Hall) 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.

You will first need to create a Student Forms Account before you can upload the documentation requested above. Visit: to get started. If you have questions or need further information about other acceptable forms of documentation please contact our office at 1-800-891-4596.
