Welcome back students!

As you settle into the spring semester and the start of classes, below are a few reminders and upcoming events.

Certification of Spring VA Educational Benefits: This is a reminder to submit your VA benefits certification request to your School Certifying Official. Benefits certification is not an automatic process and you must complete this step each semester you intend to use VA benefits. Danforth Campus students must fill out the attached form (front and back) and return it to Eileen Radomski. Medical Campus students should contact their respective School Certifying Official to request benefits. Learn more about the steps for using your VA benefits at WashU.
