Credit For Military Service and Training
Any member of the military wishing to receive credit for military service or training must contact the Admissions office. Credits for training will be reviewed and the Admissions office. If you have any questions regarding this process that seem unclear, please contact the Weber State Veteran Services office at 801-626-6039 or 6042.
If you are a veteran or military member, you can register each semester with senior status. Check with WSU veteran services to make sure you are coded as such. Also, prior to the beginning of each semester, you must provide our office with a copy of your Cat Tracks so we will know how many hours to certify you for. Each time VA sends you a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility listing the amount of months/days remaining entitlement you have. These steps will help speed up the process for you to receive your entitlements.
During your successful pursuit of education here at Weber State, MAKE NO CHANGES to your schedule unless you have contacted our office. Changes in your schedule will result in a debt to you either from the University or the Department of Veteran Affairs regional office.
Have you exhasted your Post 9-11 benefits?
