Military / Veterans Benefits and Reporting
Eligibility criteria and benefit amounts vary for VA programs from the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs (USDVA). Click here to view an overview of benefits and options and resources. Contact your student loan servicer for additional information, including eligibility information and required documentation. Benefit Description Loan and Service Eligibility.
The Office of the Registrar will submit to the Veteran’s Administration proof of a veteran’s enrollment for benefits purposes. This is typically done at the beginning of each term and can be requested by the student at any other time. Please visit the Office of the Registrar with any questions about the VA reporting process.
Enrollment Verification for Loan Deferments
Students who receive student loan deferment forms from their loan servicers may leave them in the Office of the Registrar to be processed and mailed. Only the student portion of the form should be filled out. The Office of the Registrar does not have any “blank” deferment forms .
The Office of the Registrar is only able to verify previous and current registrations after term add/drop periods. We are NOT able to verify future enrollment where registration has not occurred.
Status for (MA/M.Div.) Fall/Spring Semesters
- 0-1.0 course = less than half-time
- 1.5-2.5 courses = half-time;

Contact Registrar for Winter and Summer status categories.
Letters verifying enrollment may be requested from the Registrar’s Office as well. A written request needs to be submitted for the enrollment verification. Please also include a comment about who the letter is going to and what purpose it will serve. (For example, “I need a letter verifying enrollment for the past year for my mortgage company.”)
Forms and verification letters will NOT be faxed. The Office of the Registrar does NOT have a fax machine.
For both deferments and verification letters, please allow at least one week for processing.
