WSU Vancouver’s Veterans Affairs representative provides assistance to our students who are seeking or already receiving federal VA educational benefits. It is ultimately the students’ responsibility to ensure they have fulfilled all necessary requirements in order to use their educational benefits at WSU Vancouver.
We encourage all new WSU students to familiarize themselves with the VA Education Benefits that they intend to use by visiting the US Department of Veterans Affairs Website at www.ebenefits.va.gov. Whether you are accessing your VA education benefits for the first time or transferring to WSU Vancouver after using your benefits at another college or university, we are here to help you through the process. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance to you.
