Veteran certification

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 fall 2019 and spring 2020 semesters if:

  • you have used it previously at UT Austin, or
  • have been admitted for the fall 2019 or spring 2020 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. (CDT) on the last class day of the semester. Semester deadlines are provided below.

Semester Deadline, Last class day by 5 p.m. (CDT)
fall 2019 December 9, 2019
spring 2020 May 8, 2020

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.)  We must have all your documents, including the online GI Bill® Questionnaire, by 5 p.m. (CDT) of the Hazlewood deadline for the semester you are “stacking” benefits.

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.
