unit is located in the Registrar's Office, 003 Wilder Tower.
Mission: The Office of Veterans Services, room 003 Wilder Tower, provides assistance for eligible
National Guard/Reserves, veterans and/or dependents who enroll at the University of
Memphis and who make application for: (1) Programs of Education or Training, (2) VA
Tutorial Services. Other assistance includes: liaison with Veterans Administration
Regional Office, counseling, and counseling referral for personal, family, career,
financial, and educational problems.
Applications for VA Benefits: Those who will be using VA educational assistance while enrolled at the University
of Memphis should contact the Office of Veterans Services. They should also be prepared
to furnish the following items as applicable:
1. The number 4 original or copy of the DD214 or other armed forces separation papers.
2. Copy of Delayed Enlistment Contract.
3. Copies of marriage licenses and children’s birth certificates.
4. Copy of final divorce decree if either veteran or spouse has been previously married.
5. VA file number.
Advance Pay: Advance payment is available for eligible veterans and dependents who plan to enroll
on at least a half-time basis. Applications will be accepted in the Veterans Services
Office as early as 120 days before the term begins but no later than 45 days before
the beginning entry. Generally, the advance pay deadline for the fall semester is
around July 15, while spring semester deadline is around November 15. Advance pay
checks include an allowance for the month or fraction thereof in which the course
begins and the allowance for the following month. Advance pay checks are mailed to
the school for delivery to the student at registration. Initial applicants who do
not apply for advance pay may expect their payment through direct deposit or by a
check mailed to their home within six to eight weeks after registration.
Enrollment Status: For VA benefits during the regular terms (Fall and Spring), 12 semester hours constitute
a full-time load for undergraduate students; 9 hours is full-time for graduate students.
However, training time for summer session at the undergraduate and graduate level
is based on the number of semester hours attempted per term. The Veterans Administration
places restrictions on those who receive veterans educational benefits. Some of these
restrictions includes: (1) regular class attendance, (2) satisfactory academic progress,
and (3) adherence to a specific degree plan.
Degree Plan: Only courses that are required for the degree and major may be certified for VA pay.
VA will not pay for repeat courses if the grade already earned is accepted by the
U of M and will fulfill graduation requirements toward the declared degree and major
(even if the course was taken at another institution with or without use of the G.I.
Bill). VA will not pay for elective courses in excess of those needed to meet graduation
Although advisors are provided for veterans, this assistance does not relieve students
of the responsibility for fulfilling all VA and University requirements.
Certification: Enrollment certifications are mailed and/or electronically submitted to the appropriate
VA Regional Office upon receipt of the Veterans Request for Certification Form. Students
are required to submit this form to the Veteran Services Office at the University
of Memphis each semester. Students will be certified on a term-by-term basis. Pre-certification
will be done only when a request for advance pay is made.
