Veteran certification

The office will be closed for the winter break beginning Saturday, December 22, 2018. We will return on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. If we receive requests for VA certification or the Hazlewood exemption during the winter break, we will start processing them in the order in which we received them after we return on January 2. Please remember it may take us up to 15 business days to certify you with the VA or process the Hazlewood exemption.  Have a happy and safe holiday!

Our benefits booklet offers information about VA benefits at UT Austin, and details the documents needed to apply for them.

Visiting hours for consultation with Veteran Certification in the Office of the Registrar are Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

The staff of the Student Veteran Services (SVS) office in SSB 4.472 is also available to assist you during regular business hours.

We are accepting online GI Bill® Questionnaires and necessary documents and begin processing them after you have registered for your classes.

We are accepting Hazlewood Exemption applications for the spring 2019 semesters if

  • you have used it previously at UT Austin, or
  • have been admitted for the spring 2019 semester and paid your enrollment deposit.

Apply for the Hazlewood exemption online. The deadline for the University to receive your application and necessary documents for the Hazlewood exemption is 5 p.m. on the last class day of the semester. Semester deadlines are provided below.

semester last class day deadline by 5 p.m.
spring 2019 May 10, 2019

If you are using both VA education benefits and the Hazlewood exemption concurrently ("stacking" your benefits), you must also complete the online GI Bill® Questionnaire  requesting to be certified with the VA by the Hazlewood deadline. (This in addition to submitting all necessary Hazlewood documents, including the Certificate of Eligibility from the VA, if you are stacking.)  For the spring 2019semester, we must have all your documents, including the online GI Bill® Questionnaire, by 5 p.m., May 10, 2019.

Note that the tuition deadline is different from the Hazlewood deadline. All students are required to pay their tuition by the tuition deadline, regardless of whether you are applying for an exemption, in order to complete the registration process. If you do not, your registration will be cancelled. We urge you to submit your Hazlewood Exemption application four weeks or more before the tuition deadline to give us the opportunity to process the exemption and post it to your tuition bill before your tuition deadline.

Please see the GI Bill® and Hazlewood Exemption websites for additional information.
