Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Education Programs Certification/Recertification Policy

SUNY New Paltz prohibits the automatic renewal of VA education benefit certifications in courses and programs. Students must complete the Attendance Form every semester and/or term to request their enrollment be certified for education benefits.  This form must be completed and turned in no later than the beginning of each semester and/or term. Failure to comply may adversely affect processing payment of benefits.
