What paperwork should I submit?

There are three documents that must be turned in to the Parkside School Certifying Official

  1. A copy of your most recent Certificate of Eligibility or Proof of Remaining Eligibility
  2. A copy of your DD-214
  3. Request for Veteran Educational Benefits (R-VAB)

 

Send scanned copies of this paperwork to veterans@uwp.edu

What if I am a TRANSFER student already using Post 9/11 at another college?

In addition to the paperwork above, please turn in a completed VA Form 22-1995.

Provide us with proof of your remaining eligibility from eBenefits.

I am not a Wisconsin Resident - can I use the Yellow Ribbon Program?

If you are being assessed non-resident tuition and qualify for the Post 9/11 GI Bill at 100% you may be able to use the Yellow Ribbon Program to cover the additional tuition.  Please send an email to veterans@uwp.edu requesting to use the Yellow Ribbon Program.

What if I am not awarded 100% Post 9/11 GI Bill?

If the Post 9/11 GI Bill only covers a percentage of your tuition and fees you may qualify for the Wisconsin GI Bill to pay the remaining balance.
