Confirmation of Veteran Status


We have received your financial aid application from the federal processor, however, the application is invalid and requires your immediate attention. You indicated on your application that you have been afforded veteran status, yet the federal processor could not confirm your status as a veteran with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. You must bring a copy of your DD 214 to the Office of Financial Aid so that we can confirm your status as veteran of Active duty military. If you do not have a DD 214, but attended at least one full day of a US Military Academy (Army, Navy, or Air Force Academies), please bring proof of that attendance to the Office of Financial Aid.

If you have questions, please contact 800-891-4596.
