Veterans Affairs

Northwestern Oklahoma State University assists students who are eligible to receive educational benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. All degree plans offered by Northwestern have been approved by the State Accrediting Agency for payment of federal benefits.

The Northwestern Veterans Affairs Office will certify enrollment for payment of VA Educational Benefits for all students who meet eligibility criteria as set forth by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Northwestern Veterans Affairs Office maintains a positive working relationship with the Veterans Affairs Regional Office and other educational institution's Veteran’s Affairs Offices. This enables us to assist our students with VA and educational problems in a more effective manner. We are here to provide assistance in contacting other VA sources and to provide guidance in solving any problems they might encounter at the university.

Service to the student is our main objective. It is our goal to assist students in receiving all VA educational money they are entitled to and to receiving it in the timeliest manner.

Veterans or veterans' dependents interested in using their GI Bill benefits should contact the office of the Dean of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management to determine what documents are required at the time of enrollment to avoid delay in processing. The office is located in the Fine Arts Building, room 126, Alva Campus.

Returning students should contact the office of the Dean of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management, Alva Campus, after enrollment.
