Returning Students

After enrolling in classes, you must submit a Request for Certification each semester you wish to use your benefits. Then, the School Certifying Official will review your program of study and confirm that the courses you are taking are required in that program. Certification of Enrollment will then be sent to the Regional Processing Office in Buffalo, NY.

Check your academic requirements by visiting your academic advising report, which can be accessed in your student information, to make sure you are enrolled in the correct courses. Your certification will be delayed if you are enrolled in courses that are not a part of your academic plan.
